Small and Striking Dwarf Trees

When choosing an ornamental tree for your garden, the species, colour, seasonal interest and price all have an influence on the decision, however, the size of the tree can often be overlooked.

Many people with limited space in their garden make the mistake of planting a specimen that is too big for their landscape, and will therefore, outgrow its space or... Read More

There are some glorious flowering dogwoods out there and now is the time that they are looking fantastic. The cornus kousa chinensis with its creamy white bracts looks good grown as a bush or single stem tree. For something a little different Cornus florida Cherokee Chief has large pink bracts that smother the branches in abundance. Cornus kousa China Girl is a slightly finer form of chinensis, the white bracts are more reliable as chinensis is often grown from seed and genetic variations can occur such as pink blotches over...

Trees For Small Gardens

Blog update – November 2018. This blog is packed with tree ideas for small gardens. For those of us with small gardens, patio gardens or courtyard gardens choosing a tree is an important task. Often there is room for only one tree, so this single specimen must provide us with the most tree for our money. Trees for small gardens should be chosen not only for their limited height and spread but also for their features, as often a singular tree will become a feature tree within a small garden....
