This inspirational book from tree expert Tony Kirkham is the perfect guide to choosing and growing these essential garden mainstays.

With authoritative advice from Tony Kirkham and the Kew Gardens team, this is the ultimate companion to growing and planting trees. In addition, there are 12 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 author, who 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.

Tony Kirkham was Kew’s Head of Arboretum, Gardens and Horticultural Services until his retirement in 2021. He and his team managed 14,000 trees and shared their passion for trees with the visitors to Kew. He is the author of several books on horticulture including, as co-author, Wilson's China: A Century On and Remarkable Trees.
