Eriobotrya japonica is usually seen in the UK as a large and architectural evergeen shrub, grown for its huge, leathery, heavily-corrugated oval leaves, velvety beneath. Established plants show remarkable drought tolerance - unsual for a large leafed plant- and are a feature of many Mediterranean style plantings, despite their eastern origins. In mild areas heavily scented flowers are produced in autmn/winter and ripening, with luck, to give the distinctive orange fruits that are exotically juicy and sweet. Related to the apple, the loquat fruit is similarly high in pectin and thus suited to making jam and jellies.

Delivery location

Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it. 

Pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plant height

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Good healthy looking trees, arrived on time. Palm Centre were very helpful about delivery time/courier slots. One of the trunks is a bit kinked compared to the other, but good value.
