They are looked after as detailed in our “aftercare” advice sheet found in our help and advice section on our website

The tree has not died as a result of over pruning, lack of water/over watering

You send us at least 2 clear, in-focus photographs (preferably digital) as soon as you think there is a problem. One from a distance to show the planting area, and one close up. We may also ask for a sample plant for analysis.

You meet the cost of carriage for the replacements
