Specification and Technical Detail
What age to specify?
Wyevale Nurseries is one of the biggest general transplants nurseries in the UK growing 1.7 million two-year-transplants and a quarter of a million three-year-old transplants. We can boast over 20 years experience in producing top quality field grown native shrubs, trees and hedging plants. We pride ourselves on being one of Britain’s foremost providers of bare root, field grown plants, catering to your individual needs whether they are landscaping, forestry or agricultural industries, local authorities or private landowner.
Our extensive range of stock originates from native sourced seed where possible or is produced in the form of hardwood cuttings from our own grown material. Every year we collect Quercus and Castanea seed from our own trees on the farm – for planting in the Spring! Collection of our own seed is registered with the Forestry Commission and a Master Certificate showing provenance UK 40 – Russells End Coppice is issued and held there.
We have a dedicated nursery team with ample experience to assist with any enquiries regarding planting or aftercare. We also stock a range of plant protection products to aid establishment if required.
To remain as industry leaders investment in our transplants division site is ongoing and this year has seen £25,000 invested in a new irrigation system - 3,500 metres of pipe laid across 15 acres of seed raised hedging and forestry to give us better control of our waters.
A cold store facility with full humidity control for care of crops has been built which will extend the availability of bare root transplants later into the season.
Our most recent acquisition is another field lifter. The first of its kind in the UK, it will ensure stock can be lifted quickly and carefully to meet the high service levels the company has set.

To specify a bare root transplant is the most efficient way of ordering planting material; no pot, no peat, no heat, just plants in their basic form produced outdoors, hardy as nature intended. More than this, to specify transplants in the height range 30cm through to 100cm allows planting of material easy to handle and carry to site, quick to plant and on most sites, not requiring expensive staking.
In most cases a 2 year old plant 40-60cm or 60-80cm, height is the best choice. A 1+1 transplant is the staple norm, 1u1 gives a slimmer, straighter plant, 1+2 a stocky bushier plant.
Plants grown from hardwood cuttings rather than seed are given the rather perplexing term 0/1 or 0+1 to indicate age, in this example one year old.
KEY TO PLANT AGE
1+0 1 year seedling
1u1 1 year seedling undercut and grown in situ for 1 further year
1+1 1 year seedling lined out for 1 further year
1+2 1 year seedling lined out for 2 further years

0/1 1 year hardwood cutting
