This practical and beautifully photographed book guides you through the process for selecting the tree that will bring beauty and pleasure to the garden for years to come. Each tree has been chosen with the small garden in mind; none of these specimens will grow to dwarf the confined spaces of the average garden.
The book begins with crucial information on selection, planting, and care. The A-Z directory of trees suggest some of the best trees available, from popular choices to more unusual varieties. Each entry covers climate zones, soil conditions, and growth rates, with photographs of fruit, flowers, bark, and other features. An at-a-glance section allows you quickly and confidently to compare and locate the tree with the desired characteristics, from species that produce beautiful blooms to those with spectacular displays of color in the fall.
