It's the end of September. Growth is slowing. Let's take a look at how some of our young trees get ready for winter.
The sap stream gradually enters a resting phase, the tree begins to withdraw its energy from the leaves so energy can be stored it in the twigs. At the nursery you'll notice this in the thickening of the tree trunk.
Soon these pleached liquidambars will provide a spectacle of color.

Quercus ilex:
Our unique selection, which distinguishes itself by its beautiful leaf and frost resistant properties, is getting ready for winter. Growth is slowing, the cells become firmer.
We remain the most northern nursery to cultivate pleached holm oaks.

Indian Summer


Stroll through our living catalogue. At this time you will experience the atmosphere of the summer and already catch a glimpse of autumn. Discover our young and mature evergreen or deciduous espaliers. It is possible to plant them in the near future or to plant them next year.
Compare pleached trees of different heights to one another or be surprised by our unique maintenance-friendly shapes.

Time to admire pleached trees


Experience the colors and the light. A good time to decide which espalieresbest suit your home, garden or future projects.
Watch the young and old trees and their outcome. As a specialist in privacy and shade, we offer a clear overview of the possibilities, so you do not get any unpleasant surprises.

Experience before the leaves fall


A wide range of espaliers and potted parasol trees allow you to deviate from the normal planting period. With a little extra care (extra watering during dry spells) you can still create privacy and shade during the summer months. The largest selection and unusual shapes are still offered in the autumn, both in clod and bare root.

Potted pleached trees


The height where the first structual branch or level begins is determined at the nursery. The correct stem height is very important for the final effect. Since the height of the trunk is difficult to adjust, we offer a range of heights.
Here is an overview of the possibilities:
Espaliered stem heights
180cm / 200cm / 220cm
Deviating stem heights that we grow
0cm / 120cm / 150cm / 170cm
230cm / 250cm / 270cm
Low espaliered stem heights
0cm / 40cm / 50cm / 100cm
Parasol tree trunk heights
220 240 250 265 270 275 300 350 420cm (default in bold)

Guidelines for choosing the stem height.

Trained trees beside fences, heather matting or wood panels:
The stem height is preferably the height of the fence or slightly higher.
Usually 180cm or 200cm

Trained trees planted alongside or in a hedge:
For the maintenance of the hedge to run smoothly, the screen, level or structual brances preferably starts at least 20cm above the hedge.

Pleached trees next to a wall:
You can either partially or completely cover the wall.
The tree doesn't suffer any damage being planted close to a wall.
Usually, the upper part of the wall is overlapped which means that the espalier starts slightly lower than the wall height.

The stem height of an espalier or parasol tree does not grow along with the tree. An espalier with a stem height of 200cm will remain 200cm. It is therefore important to determine the appropriate minimum trunk height when purchasing your tree.
You can remove lower branches by pruning so that the stem is higher. The other way around is not possible.

Specialised nursery


It's all about the maintenance. Screens should be maintained as a hedge. Levels should be pruned using secateurs. Not every tree is suitable to be guided on screen. It depends on the nature of the tree.
Some trees behave very well if they are maintained as a hedge. For example, the hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). When maintained as a screen, the branch structure and the leaves are packed tightly together so that they are in competition with each other. One can assume that trees grown as hedges can handle this competition and can be guided smoothly on screen.
The Plane tree (Platanus x acerifolia), for example, is a typical tree that can only be maintained in levels (frames). The Plane tree is a tree that needs space to develop its branches and leaves. If you don't give it its space, the plane will react badly. The leaves of the Plane tree need light. If they are too close together, lots of hairs will form. Leaves that don't get enough ligh will turn yellow and fall off.You can see this in poorly maintained Plane trees.

What to choose?
If privacy is important, one can opt for the screen shape. This has the same effect of a hedge, but takes up less space than a hedge.
If privacy is less important, you can opt for levels. This application lets a lot of light through.

A screen is easy to maintain with the secateurs.
Frames or floors can be maintained on one side with the secateurs.
