We are offering a small number of the endangered Megrelian birch, grown from seed collected high in the Caucasus mountains by our Garden Manager.
An attractive shrubby tree, ideal for small gardens or a corner somewhere. Sales of this birch go directly to supporting our ex-situ conservation collection.
For £39.90 you can give a precious tree, something really special, while helping our Megrelian birch conservation project. Or why not treat yourself!
Your tree will be a 5 year old plant approximately 2 foot high.
