with the following Marketing statement:-

"Attention is again drawn to the fact that it is an offence, subject to certain exceptions, to sell, hold with a view to sale or offer for sale or any disposal, supply or transfer of seed to a third party seed of a plant variety (a) unless and until the name of the variety is included in the appropriate United Kingdom National List or the EC Common Catalogue of varieties of agricultural plant species or (b) under a name other than that which is given in a National List or the Common Catalogue for that variety."

"Barcham Trees is the largest container tree nursery in Europe and are the container tree specialists.

Barcham Trees have pioneered and promoted container tree production on a large scale in this country. Founded in 1980 the nursery originally produced a range of seedlings and open ground trees since the early 1990’s. Dissatisfied with the loss rate following transplanting to the final planting site the then owner and now Financial Director, Peter Wells, began to experiment with container production.

His quest was to find a method of production which would provide the customer with a tree capable of transplanting successfully and becoming established with a minimum of post planting stress especially in extreme urban situations.

Confident that a tree capable of surviving in the most hostile of environments would certainly be successful in all situations Wells persisted even though the accepted form of tree supply at the time was either bare root or rootballed.

Early trials with a rudimentary white container proved very successful with trees containerised producing a vibrant, full fibrous root system which transplanted successfully. The first 500 trees in white containers for market were produced on the nursery in 1991.

Since then the nursery has grown steadily, as more customers have seen the value of container grown trees, to the current size where some 80,000 trees are containerised each year.

Currently the nursery has capacity to hold 160,000 trees. Trees are now containerised using the Barcham designed potting machine which has the capacity to pot over 1000 trees each day during the dormant season. This machine is the only one of it’s kind and was the brainchild of Production Director Warren Holmes-Chatfield who sketched out the innovative design which was later turned into reality by a local foundry.

Innovation in container tree production has been the Barcham trademark with the new light pot being the latest in a long line of successful modifications to the original product introduced so modestly just fifteen or so years ago.
Barcham have also success fully completed the building of two reservoirs with a combined capacity of 72,000 cubic metres which makes the company virtually self sufficient in water.

Water is collected during the winter from a ditch which runs along the northern boundary of the nursery. The company has also installed a weather station which monitors local atmospheric conditions ensuring that water is used efficiently and economically." from Barcham Trees.
