The urban landscape has changed in the last few years with today’s small postage sized lots. It has become important to know the mature size and habits of trees.   Before purchasing your garden trees you should do a garden plan noting your garden’s environment.  Great care and research is needed to correctly choose your garden’s green bones.  Doing this will give colour, year-round interest and will reduce your yearly maintenance. Many newer cultivars have been bred for smaller ‘dwarf” and more fastigiate stature. Fruit trees on dwarfing root stalks have been available for many years which will also provide an edible bounty.  This lecture will give you a starting point, the choices are limitless.

This is a FREE course that will take place virtually on Zoom. *Please REGISTER here to receive the link and event material & updates.
