Araucaria araucana

Monkey puzzle

Price: €34.95

A popular and very distinctive conifer with a strong single stem and many highly prickly branches - enough to 'puzzle a monkey'! This Chilean tree grows very well in the Irish climate, either near the sea or inland. Ireland boasts Europe's longest avenue of Monley puzzle trees in Woodstock Gardens in Co Kilkenny. Frequently planted in gardens in and around towns and cities in Ireland. Plant in well-drained, fertile soil, and ensure that roots are not exposed to dampness. In Woodstock they are planted on gentle mounds. 1-2ft tall plants in a 3L container. Only available in our Dunboyne shop. Although generally in stock, they may be sold out at the time of your visit.
