Finding great specimen trees for smaller gardens or limited spaces, such as patios, can be a challenge, but we think we've cracked it for you here!
The stunning 'Flamingo Willow', or Salix integra 'Hakuru-Nishiki' to give it it's correct botanical name, produces a stunning Spring and Summer ritual, bursting forth from bare branches, often with catkins on, into a mass of amazing creamy pink variegated and tipped new shoots, set against white mottled and marbled leaves, keeping that lovely contrast all Summer.
It is really hardy and easy to grow, simply hack it back to shape in late Autumn, it is great in large pots as a feature plant, but needs to be grown where you can see it's delicate colours. It's not fussy at all for soil conditions, but do not let it dry out.
|Very helpful. Replaced plant damaged in transit and gave extra card advice. Delivery quick.|
Service rating : Well packed and arrive in good condition
Product : Have now bought three of these plants which shows how pleased we are with them.
Service rating : The headline offer was for a one metre tree, but once ordered, it was suddenly a 90cm tree. I phoned the company to point this out & ask if there was a corresponding 10!% discount. I was told that an e mail about the height discrepancy would be sent to head office & they would call me back. No such return call to me was ever made.
Product : The recipient of the tree seemed pleased with it, but she didn't know that it should have been taller.
Garden Bargains Comments
Unfortunately, there has been some unexpected staff absence due to illness which has affected our response times in the short term. I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.
As explained, the trees were recently trimmed back by our nursery experts to encourage new growth.

Service rating : Communication and service A+
Product : Shrub well packed and in good healthy condition.
Service rating : customer service excellent, helpful advice and willingness to assist if there is a problem my only comment is that the packing of plants needs to be addressed as ome of my plants have been packed in boxes far too small, so the brachnes get broken and it is really hard to get the plants out without damaging them further. also the pots they were in were broken too so there was compost everywhere.
Product : good quality and size of plant, looks healthy so will wait for Spring to see leaf colours

|I am pleased with the tree and bulbs and the price was good. BUT, I did not realise until after I had ordered that it would take 5-7 days to be despatched and then another 2 days to actually arrive. The delivery times should be made clear before ordering.|
