When Tree2MyDoor got in touch with me, I got a bit excited. As regular readers will know, I really enjoy gardening, and as soon as I looked at their website, I was impressed with the huge range of trees and shrubs that they have on offer.
Tree2mydoor are an award winning tree gifts company based in Manchester, UK, supplying British grown trees. They create unique and original gift packs that can then be personalised and delivered nationwide to friends and family.
I love the idea of gifting a tree like this. I think they make great presents, as they do keep on giving and serve as long term reminders. My mum has long been a giver of garden gifts, a rose to mark an anniversary, a shrub to mark a passing and so on. In fact, when our dog died last summer, my mum bought us a mock orange shrub to commemorate and remember him by. It’s a beautiful gift, and it flowers around this time of year, the same time as he died, a touching reminder. I’ve also given flowers and shrubs as gifts to celebrate new jobs, and I think they are a good idea for house moves to pop something special out into the new garden.
Tree2MyDoor is an easy to navigate website, allowing you to shop by gift occasion, ranges, types and filter by price. There is plenty of information on there to make an informed decision about each purchase, including the trees characteristics, a care guide, lots of images and exactly what’s included as part of the gift. You can go for roses, fruit trees, ornamental trees, magnolia trees, dwarf trees, large trees, willow trees, pairs of trees – seriously, there is so much choice, you just have to see for yourself!
After a good look around, I selected the Royal Burgundy Flowering Cherry Gift. I’ve wanted a flowering cherry tree for some time, and this one appealed to me as unusually the leaves are dark red. Apparently, they will then turn a warm bronze colour in the autumn which will be lovely to see. The blossom on these looks so beautiful, and I know it’s going to grow bigger, stronger and flower more year on year.
It arrived last week in an easy to carry cardboard box that fully protected the tree. On unpacking it I liked the little extra touches, as there was a card included and ribbon around both the pot and the tree itself. It comes potted up and I was impressed by how large it already is and how healthy and strong it looks. I cannot wait to see it in bloom – pop on over to the website to see how gorgeous it will look when it flowers.
I can see this making a wonderful gift for someone, as I am absolutely in love with mine and I can’t fault the delivery service or the product itself.
