Discover a beautiful, ever-changing way to remember a person or pet who is no longer with us

Our specialist compost and planting materials create the best environment for plants and trees planted with the ashes from cremation.


The Journey Starts Here

Taking the time to regularly care for your memorial is a powerful way to navigate through grief.

We believe that watching a plant flourish – whether that’s a shrub in a pot or a large tree – can give solace and hope even during the saddest of times. By planting a tree with the remains of your loved one, caring for that plant as it grows can bring comfort during this difficult period. .

What is a Tree Of Life Memorial Planting Kit?

A Tree of Life Memorial is an environmentally-conscious way to honour the memory of the deceased. Traditionally, it has not been possible to plant a tree directly with cremated ashes, as this doesn’t provide the plant with the nutrients or pH levels it needs to thrive.

By combining the remains with Tree of Life’s unique, enriching compost mixture you will be able to plant your tree or shrub with the remains, assured that you’re giving the plant the best opportunity to flourish into a beautiful, enduring memorial.

Cremated remains have a very high pH, and when combined with ordinary soil or compost, this will prevent a plant from flourishing. The plant will not get the nutrients it needs, and it is highly likely that it would not survive.

The specialist soil mixture you receive when you purchase a Tree of Life kit has been carefully created to balance out the extreme conditions created by the compounds found in cremated remains. It provides your chosen plant with the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Tree of Life is a specialist soil mix kit that allows you to plant the cremated remains of a loved one with a tree or plant of your choice. This allows you the freedom to select a plant that you feel represents the deceased, a truly personal memorial.

The kit works through the specialist soil mix which has been developed to give your chosen plant or tree the best possible chance of survival. When your kit arrives, simply follow the instructions inside the box. For an overview of the instructions, have a look at our How it works page.
