The Tree Garden Kent

 Frequently Asked Questions 

​When Can I Plant My Tree or Shrub?​

All out plants are grown outdoors & are hardy. Unless otherwise stated, they are potted & ready to plant at any time of the year. Just plant in a hole, firm in with your heel, water well (even if it's raining!) & leave to do its own thing!


I'm not a "gardener"! What do I need to do when my plant arrives?


We deliberately specialise in trees, shrubs & perennial plants that are unusual, but EASY! Our plants should delight both gardeners & non-gardeners & make fabulous gifts for anyone with a garden, patio or balcony! Unless otherwise stated in individual descriptions, all you need to do is dig a hole, backfill, water well & watch!! In its first year, water regularly, or whenever you remember, & your new plant should thrive. If "pruning" is required, no special knowledge is needed! Just trim to required size or shape. We rarely sell "precious" plants, so it's doubtful that you'd be able to kill it!

Can I visit & collect?

Visitors are always welcome for browsing or collection of plants, but we are NOT a "garden centre". We work from home & therefore do not have "opening hours". Please do not just turn up as we may not be in & it upsets the neighbours!!
