Tree planting in private gardens
We have produced a step-by-step guide to tree planting in private gardens for Wandsworth residents.
Trees suitable for gardens
Judas Tree (Cercis Siliquastrum)
A small tree with rosy-lilac flowers which make a fine display in May and purple-tinted seed pods from July.
Snowy Mespil (Amelanchier Laevis)
A small tree bearing racemes of star-shaped flowers in spring. Autumn colours vary from carlet to deep red.
Snake-Bark Maples (Acer species)
Most common maples are too large for ordinary gardens but the snake-bark maples are worth considering for their striped stems and autumn colour. Acer Capillipes, Acer Davidii and Acer Hersii are worth looking for.
Sheerwater Seedling (Sorbus species)
Golden Wonder (Sorbus species)
