The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Trees

In addition, there are twelve tree-related projects to inspire every green-fingered gardener. There is a place in every garden for a tree, but before buying it is important to think about why and what you are planting and where. Do you want to plant for privacy, as a single ornamental specimen for seasonal interest or to attract wildlife? Such key considerations are discussed by the Head of the Arboretum, Gardens & Horticultural Services at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He also explains the practicalities of growing a tree as well as describing and illustrating a wide range of trees in detail, for every size of garden.
The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Trees is part of the Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing series and is accompanied by Growing Herbs, Growing House Plants, Growing Vegetables, Growing Orchids and Growing Fruit.
