Garden investment grown with trees
Trees may not live forever, but they usually outlive the gardener who plants one to leave a lasting heritage. Think carefully about not only the kind of tree you select but also where you put it in the garden.
Along with the hardscape — paths, terraces, fences and garden shelters — trees form the bones of the garden. One of their most important functions is to give scale to a design; they provide the over-story. A mix of trees, shrubs and low plants fosters a plant community that lends richness to our gardens.
So many reasons to garden: I’m struck this summer by the number of reasons people garden. Sometime in the last year I gave a division of Echinops ritro to my friend and fellow MG, Katie, who has two small children. She just told me how much she’s enjoying watching it bloom this summer.
