The Tree & Shrub Specialist
The Essential Guide to Selecting, Planting, Improving, and Maintaining Trees and Shrubs in the GardenBook - 2005
Every garden needs trees and shrubs to form the background, act as a focal point, or add height. Here are the basics of choosing the correct ones for any outdoor space, with plenty of information on buying, planting, establishing or transplanting the trees, and even using them as windbreaks. A comprehensive and well-illustrated directory displays many tempting possibilities, including seasonal flowering varieties or types that display breathtaking autumn color; species with colored bark and stems; evergreens large and small; dwarf conifers; wall shrubs; and shrubs and trees with berries--plus bamboos, palms, and internal hedges. Follow the advice on using them, whether in a mixed border or as topiary, and the invaluable advice on care.
