This freshly delivered truffle tree makes a super and unusual gift with its promise of the highly prized, delicious truffle nuggets worth more than gold!

For centuries, truffles have been adored for their intense, aromatic flavours. This hazel tree’s roots are growing in a symbiotic relationship with the native Summer Truffle (Tuber aestivum). These precious truffle nuggets will mature underground in 4-5 years and may be foraged every summer for the next 50 years!

This truffle tree will happily grow in any garden. A card with your personal message also includes the story of your tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide. Add an engraved brass tree plaque (see images above) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.

All our trees are organically nurtured in The Present Tree's gardens, where we never use harmful chemicals, just an organic blend that's wonderful for you, your tree, our wildlife and the planet. When you place your order a beautiful tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners before being gift wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.

Every truffle tree is growing in an organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just add natural daylight and water. Truffle trees thrive in a moist, alkaline soil, so we have added the perfect balance of pH and nourishment; this organic goodness is slowly released to ensure your tree continues to flourish.

The Hazel tree under which the truffles grow is sacred in Celtic mythology and symbolises wisdom and faith, this ancient story is included with your gift. This slender deciduous tree naturally transforms with every season. In spring the Hazel tree’s catkins blossom with dainty yellow flowers which are loved by bees. The abundance of fresh leaves are perfect for birds to safely make their nests in summer. Then in autumn the ripe hazelnuts can be eaten fresh from the tree before its leaves turn pale yellow and fall.

made from:

All The Present Tree's products and packaging are 100% biodegradable, compostable, reusable or recyclable.

Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.

Tree care:

Your truffle tree will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks, just place it in a sheltered spot in the garden, even in cold weather. Plant your truffle tree, still in its organic pot so the roots and truffle fungus are not disturbed, in a large flower pot (one with holes for drainage) or in a sunny spot in the garden.

As the truffle fungus flourishes in an alkaline soil, once a year please increase the pH of your tree's top soil by adding a layer of alkaline mushroom compost.


The total height of this tree is 50-60cm. It can be pruned in autumn and may reach a height of 3 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
