A newbie here, from the UK.
I've got a small garden, about half of which is covered over with
patio. I'd love to plant a tree, but my partner is worried that th
roots will end up breaking through the patio paving. Can anyon
recommend a tree with non-invasive roots?
Our soil is alkaline and quite moist. The tree would ideally not gro
much higher than 15 ft.
The late garden writer Henry Mitchell commented that in many situations, you
*think* you want a tree, when in fact, what you really want is a large
shrub. Reason: Nature is full of surprises and the tree that was suppose to
be a dwarf variety ends up being the size of a garage.
any NATURALLY dwarf fruit trees. otherwise, why not put the tree in a pot?
can be sure it wont break up the patio. Ingrid
