    Hi I dont live to far away in Rossendale but I can think of anywhere that sells bareroot shrubs. 

    There is a wholesale cash and carry in Burnley called park lane plants but I never been so I can say if they sell bareroot. Could try springwood nursery near townley park or Gordon riggs if all else fails.

    If I was you I buy online, posted shouldn't be to dear with bareroot plants and you can shop around a bit.

    My friend who has an orchard and a copse has ordered many trees from a nursery by post but I don't know offhand who or where.  I'm sure the interweb will come up with one.

    Better get a move on if you want bare rooted plants though.

    I have used this company two or three times. Mail order.

    I've used Hopes Grove - they've been very good.

    You'll need to be quick though - it's coming to the end of the bare root season. A few extra bargains available though! image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Yes I know I should have ordered them sooner and heeled them in! Was just interested in a nursery that grew their own, in similar climate to the one they'll be panted in. 

    Thanks everyone

    ... or - even better - further north.


    These people - grow for the RHS. As cheap as I could find although I was buying 1500 odd whips. Hedges have done brilliantly with very few (single figure) failures. Its mail order but excellent quality.
