Planting trees in your garden

Yesterday’s ‘tree day’ for schools, organised by the Tree Council of Ireland, got me thinking about how important trees are to the Irish landscape in both a physical and a cultural sense.  Many of our most special trees are part of property boundaries and/or are contained in gardens.  And I feel that it is incumbent on both gardeners and garden designers that we make a worthy contribution to Ireland’ stock of trees, whether we are using native or exotic species.

There is space for a tree in your garden no matter what the size of the garden is or where it is located!

In my view, no garden should be without a tree.  The choice of trees is virtually limitless and there is a tree to suit every garden no matter what shape or size it is or where it is located.

In my next post I will explain some of the ways in which landscape gardeners use trees in their garden designs.  For now, I would love to hear your comments on this topic or get pics of your favourite trees!
