Trees for Smaller Gardens
Just because your garden is small, don’t think that you can’t have trees!
One of the advantages of planting trees is that there is a species to fit every location, regardless of size.
Many people with small gardens only have space for one tree so choosing the right one is important.
When planting in small enclosed spaces, it is advisable to plant trees that have a small crown spread.
Eventual height is an important factor too. Even small ornamental trees may, over time, reach a height of 6-7m or more.
If you only have room for one tree ideally look for one with more than one feature or season of interest
such as coloured bark or fruit or autumn colour following on from flowers.
