About the Author

Allen Paterson was from 1973 to 1981 Curator of the Chelsea Physic Garden and from 1981 to 1993 Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Ontario. He is a member of the Council of the Royal Horticultural Society, and a Distinguished Advisor to the Board of Brooklyn Botanic Garden. He lives in Dumfriesshire in Scotland.

Award-winning photographer Steven Wooster specializes in the photography of gardens and plants. He lives in London.


Planting a tree is said to be one of the best lifetime achievements but plant the wrong tree in the wrong place and the next generation won't thank you for it. Siting a tree requires care - not just for the tree but its relationship to a house, the neighbours and the overall garden design. Allen Paterson shares his many years of experience and offers an incredibly wide range of choices for every situation. Whether you are planting a delicate Acer or a towering Quercus, he carefully explains the how, where and when to plant it. Small or large, broad-leaved or conifer, evergreen or deciduous, flowers or autumn colour, fruits or colourful barks, trees offer a multitude of options in a variety of combinations and Allen guides the reader through the various merits. Accompanied by the sumptuous photographs of Steven Wooster, this is a book every gardener should have on their shelves for reference. From an introduction to the subject through horticultural and general cultivation information, the easy to read text will ensure you plant a tree that should live and give pleasure to generations to come. - Lucy Watson
