Japanese Maple Trees
Oh how beautiful these are, every garden has a space for a Japanese Maple (acer tree), no excuses! They prefer a cool shady position in a garden which is sheltered from the winds during the growing season. They lose their foliage over the late autumn and winter season but many give a spectacular autumn colour show.
We offer an extensive collection which the owner Sean is very happy with; he is the buyer and a mind of information when it comes to these beautiful trees.
There are many varieties which offer different shapes and sizes; again a shady and sheltered is important. Japanese maple trees also do exceptionally well in pots, they can really bring great colour to a patio and they are a great talking point when you have the guests over.
Better classified as large shrubs rather than trees they are slow growing, deserving of a primary space in the garden. They are very distinctive with fiery Spring foliage leading to the most beautiful Autumn coloured foliage. Never be dissuaded when it comes to Maples!
They are broken into two groups, Palmate and Dissectum. The ‘Palmate’ group grow in a more upright position with layered branches with leaves that are made up of five to nine lobes. The ‘Dissectum’ has dissected leaves somewhat feather like, truly beautiful is the only way to describe them.
Our resident nursery owner is on hand to offer specialist advice on our Japanese Maples & mature specimens!
Mature Specimen Trees
Here at Doyle’s you will find an array of mature trees and shrubs to suit your requirements. Even on the given day that you do not find what you are looking for, speak to our team and we can advise you further, we are happy to show you alternatives and where required we can order various shapes and sizes with great ease.
The benefits of choosing mature specimens in trees and shrubs is the ‘instant filler’ affect, whether that be your neighbours new extension or perhaps a neighbour that overlooks you, we can provide mature specimens to disguise the intrusion.
We supply native species such as Mountain Ash, White Birch, Hawthorn, Hazel, Holly and Willow. You will find most tress will be deciduous which means they will lose their foliage over the late Autumn and Winter season, but with this in mind they can give spectacular Autumn colour , berries and some have incredibly interesting bark.
For those that wish to create a formal entrance to your home we would recommend Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’ (hornbeam), Tilia cordata (Lime tree) and Betula jacquemontii (silver birch). Again there are so many options and we are happy to advice you so pop on down to us and let’s talk trees!
We also supply a range of evergreen specimens such as Quercus ilex (evergreen oak), Photinia ‘Red Robin’, Magnolia grandiflora (evergreen magnolia), and Prunus lusitanica (Portuguese laurel) amongst many other. Bamboos are also a fantastic screening plant, highly popular amongst our customer base. Bamboo plants come in many sizes but we find the most popular are Phyllostachys aurea (gold stem bamboo) and Phyllostachys nigra (black stem bamboo), these are classified as clump forming bamboo which basically means they will stay in clumps and will not run wild! There is a common misconception that Bamboo runs wild but do not worry, we can advise on the types which are suitable or not so suitable! Even if you are still weary we have a ‘root barrier’ fabric which can contain the spread of any bamboo once it is used when planting these beauties.
