Large Leaved Lime - Tilia platyphyllos - €12 per tree
SIt's hard to know where to start when summarising this incredible tree - considered a sacred tree in Slavic mythology, it appears in folklore across Europe and has always been revered. It differs slightly from the Small Leaved Lime by, as the name suggests, having bigger leaves and slightly darkerer and smoother bark. Perhaps little wonder when it is known to be not only a very valuable bee plant, producing an abundance of nectar, but also reportedly extremely beneficial to over 31 species of insects. The young leaves are edible, and dried lime flowers make an aromatic and healthy drink used for centuries and possible longer to treat a wide variety of ailments. The wood is popular for turning and used in furniture making. The tree is perfect to provide shade, as a lawn or street tree. May be pruned for use as hedge or screen.
