There are a number of container grown ornamental tree nurseries in the UK
usually specialising in high quality standard trees up to 4m height. 

They are expensive (around UK pound 45 each) but with good ones the survival
rates are very high and they extend the planting season. 

Container sizes range from 25 litre to 75 litre generally but I have used some
150 litre trees.

If you want some phone numbers email me.
