Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cushnie, a gardening editor of Homes Interior and Living magazine who runs a Northern Ireland landscape design firm, firmly believes that gardens, no matter their size, should have at least one tree to make them pleasurable and interesting. Lavishly illustrated with colorful and dramatic photos of trees, as well as species that provide shade, privacy, or food and shelter for wildlife, the author's 200-plus examples should whet the appetite of serious gardeners. Cushnie gives six concrete examples of trees that will thrive in various types of growing conditions like clay, acid and alkaline soil or in dry, sunny or windy areas. He also describes how to match a tree to the size of the garden. A red horse chestnut tree, for example, is appropriate for a large garden, while a crab apple would be better where space is limited. There is an expanded section on adding conifers, and on purchasing trees for their fragrance or ornamental bark. In addition to covering individual species (supplemented by a detailed directory), Cushnie gives instructions on tree maintenance, including directions concerning initial planting, transplanting, pruning, grafting and how to deal with common tree diseases. Although not for the complete novice, those who currently have trees or plan to add trees to their gardens will profit from reading this decorative and informative guide.

Library Journal
Cushnie has run a landscape design firm in Northern Ireland for 25 years, giving this guide to tree planting a decidedly British slant. He begins by suggesting trees for various purposes: alkaline soil, small gardens, autumn color, and so on. General cultural information is followed by a "Directory of Trees" and a "Directory of Conifers," which lists more than 200 trees. Each entry includes a description, mature size, USDA hardiness zones, and brief cultural information; some feature color photos as well. However, trees more popularly grown in North America (e.g., the redbud and green ash) are relegated to a sentence at the end of entries. Cushnie also omits two magnolias often grown in the United States and suggests the tree of heaven as "one to impress the neighbors" when here it is often an invasive pest. While pricier, Michael A. Dirr's Dirr's Hardy Trees and Shrubs: An Illustrated Encyclopedia and Dirr's Trees and Shrubs for Warm Climates: An Illustrated Encyclopedia are more comprehensive choices for North American gardeners. William Cullina's Native Trees, Shrubs, & Vines is a fine choice for those wishing to include native plants in the landscape.
