The Monkey Puzzle is one of the most iconic and easily recognised trees in the UK, yet not widely planted now. Many of the tallest of specimens are over a hundred years or so old, yet without the foresight of previous gardeners, we would have few to marvel at today. An intriguing and stately evergreen, with whorls of sharp leaves, they are very slow growing in their first few years and take a while to get going - which makes them a very expensive plant to propagate and sell. Despite this slow speed, they are relatively easy to grow once planted and left alone They can reach an elegant 10m in 20-30 years or so but can also be trimmed to lower than this. When planting, select a spot where it can be seen from, as they are best grown as a lawn or boundary specimen tree, with plenty of space around them

Plant height is 20-30cm and grown in a 3L pot
