Specimen plants

Specimen plants
Throughout our catalogue you will find plants which we offer not just at a small or medium size but also at a SPECIMEN SIZE.
 
This section simply puts all the Specimen Sized plants which we offer in one list for ease of reference.
 
Those of you who want an instant garden or want to create an immediate impact with something especially large will find plenty to choose from here.  Equally specimen plants can save time creating privacy for your garden from your neighbours.
 
We have attempted to show photographs of the specimen plants here where we have them,  but you will find more information on approximate sizes of specimen plants and size comparison photographs between small, medium, large and specimen plants contained in the main catalogue.
 
If you need more information on a specific plant or its suitability for your chosen site do please call us on 01209 860316,  7 days a week during office hours or email us at info@burncoose.co.uk
