Silver Birch produces white bark and smooth twigs with little, dark warts speckled all over. Two key things to look out for in Silver Birch are its triangular shaped, bright green leaves, and year-round, unique, silvery bark.

Betula pendula also produces male + female catkins throughout April-May. Male catkins will appear as long and yellow/brown, hanging in groups of 2-4. Female catkins, on the other hand, are much smaller and shorter, showing in shades of bright green. After these female catkins have successfully pollinated, they will change to a darker, crimson colour, where masses of tiny seeds are produced during Autumn and scatter by the wind.

As this is a bare root plant, we highly recommend planting it as soon as possible after delivery as the roots are tender and cannot be left to dry out.

These 60/90cm bare root̴Ì?Silver Birch plants have an average growth rate, and is best maintained at around 5m-8m high.

Silver Birch can reach up to 30m high in good conditions, but when looking for a hedge, you will need to maintain it at a much lower height than this.

  • Growth rate: Average (20-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 30m Tall
  • Soil type: Chalk, clay, loam, sand
  • Exposure: Exposed, inland
  • Aspect: Full sun, semi-shade
  • Evergreen foliage? No

As soon as you receive your bare root plant, place it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet when planted.

Prune your Silver Birch plant near the end of Winter or beginning of Spring, if necessary. All you will need to do is remove any diseased, dead, crossing, damaged or congested shoots- those that are growing out of the desired shape can also be pruned out. You will not need to carry out a pruning routine.

We do recommend adding some mulch feed, however, after pruning. This will maintain overall health.
