Free Tree Seeds Pack from woodlands Trust

The UK has one of the lowest tree cover rates in Europe, just 13% compared to a European average of 37%.

We stand up for trees, and we need you to do the same. We’re on a bold ambitious journey to plant 64 million trees by 2025 and you can join us.

Claim your free seed pack and help make a difference.
Your mixed pack of seeds will contain rowan, dog rose, alder buckthorn and holly.

Your pack will come with full planting instructions and care advice, and we’ll stay in touch to help you as your seedlings germinate and grow.

The seeds we send you will be kept moist with compost to help them germinate. This means it will be harder to tell the different seeds apart when they arrive. If you would like to try and identify the seeds you're planting you can wash the compost off but then the seeds must be sowed immediately. It will be much easier to identify your seedling once it has germinated.

Be careful what you are getting. These tress seem bushy and fast growing - and may soon overtake other plants in the garden..

They also have a lot of berries so would propagate around your area quickly.

Not sure advisable for small gardens...just be careful they are right for you and your area before planting.

Said with care and love!

I would have hoped experts in this sort of area would've known the plural of 'leaf' isn't 'leafs'... That's an American website, where buckthorn has been introduced and can be fairly invasive (as it grows better than native plants in american climates). However, it is native to Europe, and is actually very beneficial to British wildlife (not least the Brimstone butterfly), and as such shouldn't pose a problem at all over here.

tl,dr; Buckthorn is fine, calm down.
