Grey Alder - Alnus incana - €10 per plant
2000 seeds - €10 - inc. delivery
A very hardy (-41C) nitrogen fixing tree that can tolerate some shade, strong winds and grows very fast on poor soils makes this an excellent choice for a windbreak hedge as well as a fertility plant within a forest garden. The plant is also well suited to coppice management producing useful poles and logs relatively fast. Like other members of Alnus genus, it is able to fix nitrogen from the atmosphere. It thrives on drier soils than most other alders, and grows rapidly even under very unfavourable circumstances, which renders it extremely valuable for landscape planting on poor soils and heavily compacted sites. A good chop and drop plant. To order this plant or seeds please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
