In Celtic mythology the Rowan tree is also known as 'The Tree of Life' and symbolises protection. It's a gorgeous, meaningful gift for someone special.
Since ancient times a Rowan tree has been planted outside a home to protect and guard its family. This Rowan tree gift is beautifully wrapped in organza and delivered in a luxury parcel so it will arrive looking gorgeous. A card with your personal message, the story of the Rowan tree's ancient symbolism and care guide is enclosed with your tree gift.
You can also personalise your tree gift with a brass plaque or heart inscribed with your personal message (see images).
Please note: This tree is deciduous so its leaves will naturally change colour and fall every autumn. It will remain bare and dormant all winter until the warmth of our spring sunshine encourages new leaves to unfurl.
The Rowan tree will happily grow in any garden and is wonderful for our birds and bees. It has delicate, feather-like leaves and creamy blossoms in spring. Bright red berries ripen every autumn which make delicious Rowan jelly!
Your Rowan tree (Sorbus aucuparia) is growing in its organic pot with top-notch compost, so no green-fingers required - just add water! We have added special nutrients to its compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for several months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your Rowan tree, still in its organic pot, so the roots are not disturbed, in an outdoor flower pot (about 15cm wide and with holes so excess water can drain away) or plant in a sunny spot in the garden.
All The Present Tree's products and packaging are 100% biodegradable, compostable 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.
This Rowan tree is 50-60cm high. It may be pruned in autumn and will reach 3m high in 5-10 years if allowed to grow naturally.
