Rootgrow Professional



By planting in the autumn you can let Mother Nature do all the hard work for you when it comes to watering, and your tree gets the whole autumn, winter and following spring to really get roots established before the onset of summer.

Planting with Rootgrow during the growing seasons will establish a secondary root system of mycorrhizae typically within four weeks. This early establishment of micorrhizae is particularly effective in dry conditions.

We use Rootgrow to help tree roots establish and cope with drought.

Tree Planting Guide - planting container grown trees










Beautiful exotic and unusual gardens are not rare these days. Everywhere you look, in suburban gardens and townscapes are amazing displays of world plants.

How do they do that? you wonder. Can I have plants like that? Will they survive the winter?

Of course! Just check out those planting schemes year on year - they do survive! The world is full of beautiful plants that are tough survivors, yet they are still elegantly stunning, breathtakingly colourful and just - well, superb.

Palms and other exotic plants have been growing out of doors in Britain for centuries. Parts of England and Scotland are officially classed as sub-tropical, and the climate is still getting warmer! We all have our worries about this, but one thing is for certain, in our lifetime Mediterranean temperatures in parts of the UK are here to stay. The upside in our country, is that a new invasion of world plant species has arrived and is being enjoyed in gardens and townscapes all around us, no more so than in the south-West.

At East of Eden Plants, not only do we plant the 'average' tried and tested exotic plant varieties that have been used over the past years, but we also use new naturalised and tested species growing in this country, giving you an even wider choice of colour, form and texture for your garden.

We have scientific knowledge of the growing requirements of our vast exotic plant selections and have the experience of their good plant natures and habits and preferred habitats.

Our artistic and design experience and appreciation of planting schemes for effect means you can design your garden with us with confidence.

In short, we know our plants!

From boggy bottoms to sun-baked tops, we know what will be happy where, what goes together, how to create stunning effects of form, colour and texture with a wider array of world plants than you may yet be aware of, with new varieties being added to the list all the time.

All our palms and native trees are superb specimens, selected for quality and appearance, and ready for garden and all landscaping projects.

Introducing height and structure in a garden design can be very rewarding. Trees are often used for this purpose. As the largest design elements, trees define the nature and character of the whole garden design.

Amelanchier lamarckii -Snowy mespilus-June Berry

Amelanchier lamarckii - Snowy mespilus - June Berry

A very beautiful, small, North American tree that is attractive in all seasons, even in winter when its spreading crown of fine shoots makes a satisfying, dense, shrubby shape. In March the branches erupt with a froth of star-shaped flowers in lax conical heads, just as the coppery pink young leaves unfold - in summer these are yellowish green, but later turn scarlet and crimson.

In July the tree is studded with dark red berries which become purple-black as they ripen. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Delivery of Prunus to the Royal William Yard

Please remember when ordering trees that delivering trees to site is a bit of an operation. Even though we are used to this, every design project is different.

Large trees are delivered by lorry. Typical cost for even a short distance could be around £75 per delivery for the UK mainland, but could be considerably more, even though we deliver at cost. Please check with us for the delivery cost to your area.

The good news is that the delivery charge for lorries is the same whether the number of trees you want is 1 or 20! You probably wouldn't want a single small tree delivered by this method, but we can deliver single specimens up to 4 metres by van, or you may be able to arrange a collection.

Choosing Trees in an Urban Garden

We love trees. Tall trees, short trees, evergreens, Mediterranean trees, tropical trees, palm trees, home grown British native trees -

Although some of the above trees may be associated with large open spaces, with our design experience we can recommend trees for the smallest of areas including courtyards and roof gardens. We can even supply very large pots and specialist compost for trees for sites with no soil. We also specialise in trees for interiors from the smallest office to the largest atrium area.

In addition to trees also see our range of TALL SHRUBS and CLIMBERS.

Trees grow typically 30 feet to 150 feet tall, some faster than others. The spread of the canopy and the roots will be equal to this. Trees typically weigh fifty tons to five hundred tons. If your project space cannot easily accommodate these facts you will have ongoing annual pruning costs which may be £100's a year.

Trees in gardens are a big commitment. Trees are the defining element in any garden design. Everything else is secondary and dominated by those trees. Trees use up considerable amounts of space, light and nutrients in your garden (although the nutrient use can be off-set with the use of ROOTGROW professional). If you plant too close to a boundary you will be taking you neighbour's light and space. Plant too close to a building and you will eventually damage it. Consider also any pipes or cables that are already in place within the project area. Remember rootsize is equal to the canopy size!

If the natural growth of the full grown canopy will project beyond your boundary you will need a written agreement with your neighbour.

You may decide with your neighbour on a tree planting project. Decide on the trees and on whose land the trees will be and put it in writing.

Trees ~ centrepieces of any garden design project

Whether its classic UK garden design, or tropical or Mediterranean garden design themes, we source and specify only the best quality trees we can find. Where we can, we use white pot grown trees.

The traditional UK tree planting season is the dormant period October through to early March with bare root stock, but with airpot container trees the rootball is undisturbed and can be planted throughout the year. The use of Rootgrow mycorrhiza increases success rates.

Top tree selection

Our expertise of what grows where means we will select the right trees for you.

Life's too short to choose bad trees

Not all trees will do well in every situation.

Like all plants, trees are suited to their own environments and need their own growing conditions.

Always choose the best trees available, in particular you should pay attention to the root system.

We supply guaranteed quality plant stock always.

Contact us for advice and quotes by phone or email form.

White Pot grown Trees

White pot grown trees provide a much improved fibrous root system giving better transplant resilience and no transplant shock.

All sizes of trees available

Where possible we supply trees with the white pot system.

Olive trees are very well suited to UK gardens, especially small gardens and courtyard settings. They are slow growing and frost hardy when mature and create a perfect sense of peace wherever they appear.

The olive is the symbol of peace and prosperity - so say it with an olive tree!
