The summer is long gone now, and colourful autumn is also coming to an end in order to give some space to the winter and its white, grey and black hues. We have absolutely no doubt that you have planned your interior in the best possible way, but if you also spend some time on planning the exterior of your garden you will be able to enjoy a whole year of greenery by planting some evergreen trees there.

 Winter Gardening

We offer you a few types of evergreen trees that you can choose for your garden:

Korean silver fir (Abies Koreana ‘Horstmann’s Silberlocke’)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and moisture, soil with good drainage
  • Why choosing it? We guarantee that you will just love the soft silvery fir needles of the plant and its unusual beauty

Korean silver fir is one of the most beautiful evergreen trees with its dense tufts of soft fir needles with soft silvery-green colour. This magnificent tree is a great decoration for the garden in every season and reaches a height of about 10 metres.

Weymouth pine (Pinus strobus ‘Pendula’ – Northern White Pine)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and moisture, and well-drained soil
  • Why choosing it? You will fall in love with its long, soft fir needles and irregular shapes, which create a cascade of falling branches.

The graceful Weymouth pine looks like a waterfall of greenery with a typical bluish tinge. It looks spectacular when fastened to a wooden lattice to pacify its form, creating a beautiful green curtain. The tree adapts very easily to different weather conditions. If you let it grow naturally, it turns into a low-growing tree that covers the ground with its branches.

Silver Dwarf Spruce (Picea pungens ‘Montgomery’)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and soil with good drainage
  • Why choosing it? Its compact size makes it suitable for literally any garden, and the interesting colour of its crown attracts attention

The typical silver-blue colour of this kind of spruce, combined with the small size of tree creates a wonderful decoration even for small gardens. The Silver Dwarf Spruce can reach a heigh of 3,0-3,5 metres but there are species that grow only to 2,0-2,5 metres.

Japanese Umbrella Pine (Sciadopitys verticillata)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and moisture, and well-drained soil
  • Why choosing it? This is a great choice if you are looking for an evergreen tree, which is interesting and attractive, but does not require much attention.

The glossy dark-green fir needles that come together in not too dense bundles are very beautiful. This evergreen tree will help you add an interesting and unusual accent in your winter garden. Depending on its type, the Japanese Umbrella Pine can reach a height of 10 metres.

Curly White Pine (Pinus strobus ‘Contorta’)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and well-drained soil
  • Why choosing it? You will fall in love with the unusual silhouette of the tree

This is actually one of the most unique types of evergreen trees that you can choose for your garden. The unusual shape of the fir needles of this white pine will create a spectacular accent in the garden, especially during the winter. This tree can hardly be mistaken even from a distance, thanks to its long, flexible fir needles that seem to be “frozen” in various shapes. This magnificent pine can reach a height of 15 metres and width of the crown about 3,0-3,5 metres.

Golden Korean Fir (Abies koreana ‘Aurea’)

  • Growing conditions: Lots of sun and moisture, and well-drained soil
  • Why choosing it? You will like the neat “bundles” of fir needles and their delicate and exquisite golden hue.

This type of fir tree is quite unusual for the yellow tips of its needles, which seem to be kissed by the sun. It is a great choice for your winter garden if you want to add some colour during the cold months of the year.
