Can I plant any tree in my garden?

Which trees you can plant in you backyard will depend on the US hardiness zone you are in. It's important to do some research around the tree you would like to grow in your garden to see if it will be happy in your local climate. Failing to do so can risk the tree not growing well and even dying. The good news is that no matter where you are located or the size of your yard, there is a tree for every garden.

We're excited that The Sill has launched its first outdoor plant range and think that it has something for every gardener. From fruit to flowers, these new plants from The Sill are sure to brighten up any yard just in time for spring. 

Make sure to properly research any plants you're adding to your yard or garden so you can ensure any key jobs are added to your gardening checklist. Explore our spring gardening checklist in our dedicated feature.
