Sycamore - Tree of joy and fertility
The whimsical sycamore symbolises joy and fertility. This is largely due to its playful winged seeds. The sycamore produces seeds that children often call 'helicopters' due to the magical spiralling movements when they fall from the branches. Sycamore seeds are also very fertile and are able to spread quickly.
Preferred planting conditions
Sycamore prefer sunny and slightly shaded places and tolerate strong winds very well. Sycamore prefers calcareous, well-drained, moderately fertile and moderately moist soil. It also tolerates weaker, rocky ground however dry soil with high salinity should be avoided. In addition, the sycamore is completely frost resistant and there is no need to cover it for the winter.
Each tree comes with a beautiful card, hand-illustrated by the very person who grew these trees. The card includes details of growing conditions and information about the tree species, with a blank page to allow you to hand-write or leave a printed message for your loved one.
Sycamore would make a great gift for a newly engaged or married couple or perhaps a thank you gift for a childhood friend.
Price includes delivery. Gift trees will be delivered in 3-5 working days upon receipt of the order.
NOTE: Deciduous gift trees (beech, oak, rowan and sycamore) delivered between October and May will not have leaves as they are now dormant during this time. The tree is still perfectly healthy, it is just asleep, and it will regrow its bright, glossy foliage again in the spring. These trees actually prefer to be planted during this period, so it is the best time to gift!
