Planting a tree is one simple action that can give a garden an entirely fresh outlook. A tree will add height to any garden, however small the garden may be. Without a tree, even the best border can look disappointingly flat.
A tree also makes a great focal point, and attracts birds, giving them somewhere to perch. And if you choose a fruit tree, you'll have a useful contribution to your housekeeping.
If you're still not convinced, you can always keep a tree in a pot. This has two key advantages: you can move it around to wherever you need it, and it can be taken with you when you move.
