Even the smallest garden benefits from including at least one tree – if chosen well, they provide year-round colour and interest, benefit wildlife and can make a small garden seem bigger. There’s a host of beautiful trees that can be grown in a small garden, and some that will thrive in a container. Here, we share some of our favourite trees for small gardens. There are options to suit every garden style and trees that will provide fabulous autumn foliage, beautiful spring blossom and delicious fruit for you or vibrant berries for the birds. Our choices include recommendations from the Gardeners’ World team and familiar faces from across the gardening industry.

Sorbus vilmorinii Chosen by Nick Bailey, Gardeners’ World presenter
Few so-called small garden trees are actually small, but this mountain ash forms a near perfect lollipop never taller than 5m. Its pale pinnate leaves have a delicate fern-like quality, which set off the white spring flowers and even whiter hanging clusters of autumn fruits, a treat.
Corylus maxima ‘Purpurea’ Chosen by Frances Tophill, Gardeners’ World presenter
In a small garden, you need something that will work hard for its space. With a hazel, like Corylus maxima ‘Purpurea’, the flowers may not be traditional blossoms, but the catkins, really bring that feeling of joy as spring emerges, the purple leaves look lovely through the year, and in autumn (if you’re able to fit two) you get delicious cob nuts, and coppice wood to provide timber for pea sticks and structures.
Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’ Chosen by Toby Buckland, Gardeners’ World presenter

Isn’t every plant great in a group? Well, the answer is no. Some plants are too vigorous in their growth habits to share the stage, while others are better if put on a pedestal all their own (i.e. the focal point plants of the landscape). Today’s episode we talk about plants that are great in masses—that is to say—in groups of three or more. We have options for shade, choices for sun, and selections for those in-between exposures situations. We’ll also feature some great plants that we’ve seen grouped to perfection in gardens featured in Fine Gardening. And you don’t have to be a millionaire to group plants. Many of our suggestions are easily divided after just a year or two, providing you with multiple plants for the price of just one.
