Tree supplier

This is my first post here, so if I was supposed to say hi in another place first, I apologise.

Here is my problem; I bought a Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula') from Pantiles nursery in surrey about ten years ago, and now I am looking to move house so I need another one, preferably a large specimen - mine is 520mm circumference at the base, 8.5M top to bottom as it where - if it was not a weeper, so something about that size would be nice. Pantiles went into liquidation in June this year, so I need to find another supplier, anyone got any ideas? Before you ask, yes, I did build a climbing frame for mine, here it is early this year:-




  • Thanks for that, but I have done a google search and the biggest I can find is 4M, which will be about 18cm circumference at the bottom, from Seagrave Nurseries. Everywhere else are 1.7-1.9M max. I am looking for something about 6-7M and 35-45cm around the bottom, about 10-11 years old. Seagrave does have a 5M tree, but it is not a weeper and at £1150 it is quite pricey.

  • The two mature tree companies I know are Barcham and Paramount Plants.  They are friendly - may be worth dropping them a line?

    And these people say that they will try and find the tree that you are looking for


    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
  • Another nursery supplying semi-mature trees is this one - I've found them very helpful in the past - why not give them a ring?

  • Paramount have no stock with these at the moment, which is ok, at least they can supply. Crown and Majestic have yet to get back to me, but no luck with Barcham. Thanks for your responses, now all I have to do is find a house to move into.

  • Good luck - let us know how you get on image

    There were a couple of these at Bressingham, forming an amazing archway, near the winter garden, I think.

    Would you get the shape you want with a pregrown specimen?

    You may get a better result with smaller trees you can grow to shape yourself.

  • no luck from crown. the two at Bressingham are very impressive, I did the youtube tour.
