When selecting trees for a small garden in many cases there may only be space for one tree so choosing the right one is important. When planting in small enclosed spaces, it is advisable to plant trees that have a small crown spread.
Eventual height is an important factor too. Even small ornamental trees may, over time, reach a height of 6-7m or more. If you only have room for one tree ideally look for one with more than one feature or season of interest such as coloured bark or fruit or autumn colour following on from flowers. It is important when choosing trees for a small garden that any trees chosen are right for their surroundings in terms of proportion as well as for their decorative value.
