Memorial trees are just great. They provide a focus point for remembrance, they represent life and the renewal of life. A company that Charles at the Good Funeral Guide spotted are doing mail order trees.
I have to say (and I am not on commission – honest) the deal seems reasonable. Cards and flowers are good for some people, but for other this could just the thing. We do have a page on memorial trees which offers advice, so have a look. One other word of advice – you should consider if those receiving the tree have the time, inclination and space to do this. I say this because one was dispatched to someone I know (a non gardener I have to say) who initially thought it was a lovely idea, they then procrastinated, tree got left and eventually died, my friend now has an extra tier of guilt to deal with, so think first….
