Tilia Vulgaris is a tree whose common name in the United States is Basswood. It is also called Lime tree (but not the citrus tree) .

I am also searching for a nursery that sells Linden Trees (Tilia cordata)this is the national tree of the Czech Republic.
I am originally Swiss, they are everywhere out in the country side there now, flowering. The flowers make a gorgeous tea. Would appreciate any input on where to purchase trees in Nsw or anywhere in Australia!!!
Cheers

Attention Please! Can you help me with this. There is a branch with new leaves near the base of this grafted Linden tree and I need to know if I should remove it or not. It seems that it might be below the graft union although it is a little hard to tell. As you can see, this branch is growing new leaves now while rest of the tree is still in bud which makes me suspect that the branch is coming out of the rootstock. Could you please examine the photos and let me know. Thank you.

Linden Trees have multiple edible uses. The young mucilaginous leaves can be eaten like lettuce. The flowers can be used to make a sweet and refreshing cordial as well as the iconic Linden Tea. There are two types of Linden Blossoms, Fragrant and Non-Fragrant. For making these beverages, make sure that you use the fresh blossoms of the fragrant type.

Then, when they start fruiting, the green Linden fruits were historically used to make chocolate and there are some recipes online for making Linden Chocolate.
Well I would like to see THAT!.

Hi Linton if its grafted, its probably on a seedling rootstock. I think it would be the same species, but I read others could be used. If the top graft growth is flushing well, I cant see why keep the sucker growth. I have had problems with other grafts, when fast sucker growth has overtaken the graft and causes decline.
I have also used suckers to force slow graft growth. Overall think about the structure of your tree, and what is the point of low growth.

I have removed the low sucker branch now as it is definitely not needed. Thanks for your information.

You need to try this, the stunning Linden Flower Cordial! I found a really simple recipe to make the fragrant Linden Flower cordial. Just go out and grab some flowers from the nearest Linden tree growing in the neighbourhood. You need to be quick as the trees are fully loaded right now.
Once you get them home put them in a bowl of water to steep, just covering the flowers and leave them overnight to steep. Next day strain the solution and cook up with some sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice and the syrupy sweet cordial is ready to enjoy!
