Wykeham Mature Plants
Time is rarely on one's side, never more so than when a mature effect of shrubs and trees is required in an open garden or landscape.
Set in the attractive setting of a walled garden at Wykeham Abbey, visitors to Wykeham Mature Plants can explore a nursery which combines innovation with traditional horticultural skills to create an effect of maturity from trees, shrubs, hedging and conifers of up to 20 years old.
Wykeham Mature Plants offers the ideal solution for transforming an open space, offering customers the opportunity to buy time and the immediate effect that professional and careful long-term production brings.
Buying direct from the 100+ acre production nursery offers customers a wide choice of nursery-fresh, top quality plants, available in larger sizes than are normally available. Tens of thousands of container-grown plants, from ground-cover to semi-mature trees up to 6 metres high, are immediately available throughout the year to choose from. For traditional, seasonal choice for planting between November and March, thousands more plants are available from the extensive field nurseries. To provide even more choice and variation, new stock is arriving throughout the year from approved suppliers in the UK and Europe.
Wykeham Mature Plants have a wide range of shrubs selected for all year round interest and all produced in larger than normal sizes from 1 metre to 3.5 metres high to create an effect of maturity in an instant.
The business has historically specialised in large, field-grown trees. These days, due to advancements in growing techniques, most of the trees are available container grown. The advantages of this are that they are available all year round, are much easier to transplant than traditional field grown stock, and are much easier to handle than traditional root balled trees.
For the really big root balled trees, which are very heavy (about one tonne each), and have to be mechanically handled at all times, Wykeham Mature Plants recommend using the planting service available.
A wide range of ornamental conifers is available, together with conifer material suitable for screening and/or large hedging purposes in sizes up to five metres tall. A popular range of pre trimmed hedges and topiary, including Laurel, Box, Beech, Hornbeam, Privet, Holly, Thorn and Yew, give the appearance of an established hedge after planting. There is also a range of ornamental shrubs suitable for more informal and flowering hedges and screens.
To support the quality stock production, design and planting services are available to both private and commercial clients. Other services available include tree moving, subject to inspection, and contract growing for future projects, dates and special events.
With few exceptions, virtually the entire range, including topiary, seasonal flowering shrubs, exotics, trees and covered arches, is available for hire/rental for weddings and events. Contact us for a quote so that we can enhance your special day - or, if you already have a toaster and a set of towels (!), call to discuss preparing a wedding list with us for the garden of your dreams.
Set in the Vale of Pickering, the nursery is located on the Dawnay Estate at Wykeham. The container units are situated within the Estate walled gardens adjacent to the main house, and are open Monday to Saturday between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
