Trees are a gardener's dream, they are the mainstays of any successful garden. With a huge variety to choose from, these glorious plants provide a wealth of choice by shaping the mood and composition of any garden. This intensely visual practical manual shows how to select the best trees for your garden, and how they can be used to bring structural interest as well as dramatic colour and year-round impact.
The book covers all the technical aspects of planting trees, such as how to incorporate them into the garden design; mixed border plantings; group plantings and woodland schemes, avenues; hedges, screens and windbreaks; and in tree collections. There are also useful how-to sections that explore the practicalities of growing and propagating trees.
There are easy-to-follow step-by-step sequences showing every required technique, including selecting the right tree for a plot; planting and arboriculture; and growing trees in containers and under glass. There is also easy-to-follow photographic guidance on staking, mulching, watering and feeding, as well as pruning, propagation and dealing with pests and diseases.
