Mature plants, the ideal gift this Christmas

Mature plants, the ideal gift this Christmas

If you are struggling to find that special someone a gift then why not look at something that will last, flourish and grow, like a mature plant for their garden. They make an unusual and thoughtful gift and are something that your relative or friend can plant in their garden and enjoy throughout the whole year.

Many Christmas gifts are often unwanted and too many end up either at the charity shop or even worse left collecting dust in the spare room. With such a high proportion of people having a passion for their garden it makes sense to buy them a gift they will truly appreciate and despite the winter months many species make ideal gifts.

We are proud to have one of the largest stocks of mature plants in the area and are expecting a delivery of mature plants to arrive shortly to add to our existing extensive range.

Popular species here at Arundel Arboretum include:

  • Magnolia
  • Philadelphus
  • Cotinus
  • Photinias
  • Myrtus
  • Elaeagnus
  • Laurels
  • Ligstrum
  • and so many more

Not only do trees and shrubs make a nice gift but they are also a sustainable and environmentally friendly way to take part in the gift of giving. Man made gifts use the earth’s valuable resources but a plant does quite the opposite and with the added benefit of helping wildlife to flourish, something we are all too keen to encourage here at the Arboretum. Right now if you pay us a visit you will see fieldfares, redwings, buzzards, blue tits to name but a few.

Why choose a mature plant over a younger specimen?

  • Mature plants provide an instant impact and the garden can achieve the look of maturity straight away
  • A mature, well planted garden can add value to a property
  • Mature hedges and trees encourage wildlife to flourish
  • A well established plant will stand a better chance of survival

Visit us where you will not only find a large variety of stock but also friendly, helpful, experienced and knowledgeable staff who can assist you in choosing the right gift for your loved one.
