Trees in my Dreams

In my dreams, I shall have a huge garden which looks out onto the rolling green horizon. In it there will be magnificent trees, and each month one of these trees will take centre stage to become most spectacular of all and each shall wait patiently for their turn to step into the limelight.

Well maybe, like most of us, all of this is unlikely, maybe we have a urban or suburban garden, but in some ways all the more reason to be looking for a tree or two to really bring your garden to life or frame the planting (or hide that ugly neighbouring house at the back!) at certain times of year.

What trees should you choose and when will they be at their crowning glory? Here's a Woollygreen list, of course all of which I have in my garden (in my dreams!)
