What is the best ornamental tree to plant in my front garden. I have a semi-circle at the front of a block paved area and want it to be a statement piece (perhaps similar to a bonsai tree). Can you give me any suggestions that do not need much maintenance please?



yes, but more information first please - whereabouts in the UK are you, and what aspect is the bed,that is, does it get full sun, no sun, half a day's sun, is it very exposed and windy or nice and sheltered? And the rough distance from your house to this bed, or any other structure with foundations...

Also what size were you thinking of - you can't keep most taller trees small by cutting them back as it spoils the shape.
