Woodland Trust Native Tree Shop
By Woodland Trust
The Woodland Trust is a major UK conservation body dedicated, as the name suggests, to conserving our native woodlands and trees. This website is their on-line shop which allows you to buy native trees and shrubs for the garden.
This venture is a partnership between the Woodland Trust and Alba Trees. The plants cost less when you buy in greater volumes, but they are not cheap, for example around one pound per hawthorn plant (when bought in bulk) is more than twice what you can expect to pay elsewhere (however, I've also seen them sold more expensively). If it's important to you to be very confident in your source and if you would like to support the work of the Woodland Trust to boot, then check the site out.
The secure on-line shopping facility is everything you would expect of a major outlet. Delivery to anywhere in the UK (within 14 days) is included in the price. Another selling point is that the plants are available all year round - some nurseries will only ship plants in the dormant season (winter).
