Planting With TreesBook - 2007
Trees are normally the largest and most important plants in any garden. They are long-term subjects that form an essential part of the structure of the garden and have profound influence on the rest of the planting. Choosing a tree can be a difficalt decision. Making the right choice, of both the tree and the surrounding plants, is important. Planting with Trees sets out to help the gardener use trees in the same creative way that other plants are used. It identifies their tributes at different times of the year and suggests what to grow under, up and through them to enhance their effect. All gardens, however small, have room for at least one tree; the question is which to choose. Planting with Trees answers this and many other questions. Can I grow a tree in a pot in my tiny space? I'd like a tree with interesting bark. What do you suggest? Which rose should I choose to grow through a tree? Which trees can I grow for spectacular color in fall? Are there any evergreen shrubs that grow under trees? My garden backs onto open country. Which trees would fit in? I want a tree with spring blossom. Which is the best? What can I plant alongside a tree with purple foliage? How do I know how big a tree will be in ten years? I want a tree with berries for the birds. What should I choose? Book jacket.
