Weasdale Nurseries

Welcome to the website of Weasdale Nurseries, retail mail-order specialist suppliers of hardy trees and shrubs since 1950.

Servicing customers throughout EC Europe, our open-ground grown plants are carefully packed and shipped to our customers during the period of winter dormancy, from early November until mid-late April, ready for planting in their new surroundings.

Please take your time to move around our site and discover what we have to offer, how we do business, how to order, how to plant your trees and much more besides. We look forward to welcoming you as a new customer in the near future.   Useful hint: If you'd prefer to see larger text press "Ctrl" and the "+" key and you will zoom to a larger page size.  To return to a smaller size, press "Ctrl" and "-" (the key next to the +).

2014-15 Season - Lifting and Despatching Update - 2nd October 2014

We're now entering the lead-in period to the new season with pre-season orders starting to build nicely.  Our first zero degree night frost was in mid-August and we've had a few through September, but last night hit -3C so exactly what we want to start tipping the plants into shutdown for autumn.  September was fantastic and we had 23 days without any rain at all and only 8.2mm in the whole month.  When our wettest September (in 2000) gave us 297mm, that's a measure of how dry it has been.

We have now completed stocktaking and the new catalogue is at first draft stage, so it should be ready for distribution in a couple of weeks.  In the meantime, there are still stocks of last year's one if you would like to see that.

You can place an order on line but remember, if for live plants, it won't be shipped until November.  As ever, we shall confirm any web orders after your automatic webshop receipt has been sent to you and our confirmation will reflect any possible size changes.

If you have a requirement for larger numbers of plants, we can supply container-grown stock outside the bare-root window using pallet-delivery service, but this is not cost-competitive for small quantities of plants.

Sundries, books, gloves and so forth are available year-round as usual.

PayPal and American Express

We have now added PayPal to our webshop payment options as we know that this a method favoured by millions for its simplicity.  Click on the Credit /debit card / PayPal option at the checkout and then PayPal for a swifter, cleaner process.  Amex have also now improved their retailer terms and so you may also now pay using an Amex card for your shopping trolley full of Weasdale plants.

Ash Dieback (Chalara fraxinea)

This serious disease of Ash is now in the UK and you can find out more about it under "Useful Stuff".  Sadly, it means that no-one is allowed to sell or move this valuable tree until further notice. Please note, however, that this disease does NOT affect the Mountain Ashes, which are not true Ashes at all, but from a completely different and unrelated family. 

Red Squirrels

Many of you may know that the nurseries here are a stronghold of the endangered native Red Squirrel and we are on the front line of the invading Grey Squirrel's territory.  For an "aaah!" moment, click here: Bold little Red Squirrel for a brief introduction to an endearing friend of ours....   Her first approach was in the depths of a bitterly cold winter 2009, when probably particularly hungry.
