Glossy Buckthorns—a parent of Fine Lines, were introduced in the United States about 200 years ago from Europe. In 1989, Ron William, a nursery owner in Green Bay, Wisconsin discovered the accidental cross producing the Fine Line. He has licensed the plant patent to Spring Michigan in 2003. Since then, the Fine Line® Buckthorn continues to grow in popularity nationally.

How To Plant Fine Line® Buckthorn Big
Plant your new Fine Line® Buckthorn in partial sun or if you want best results possible, they can be placed in full sun to catch those rays. They prefer to be planted in well-draining soil, somewhere raised so water doesn't collect.
How To Water
Buckthorns require a moderate amount of water during their first season on a regular basis.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements Fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
Your Fine Line® Buckthorn will only need very little pruning. Snip away any dead and broken branches anytime of the year.
How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks to be delivered. - Sizes Large (AA) and smaller (Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
