1. Planting Trees
Trees are significantly important for the environment. No matter how small or how large a tree may be, planting trees everywhere is beneficial for humans, animals as well as the Earth we walk on. The most suitable tree for small garden space is a crabapple tree, which has got amazing sprays of fruits as well as flowers, and it grows upright. If you are looking for even taller trees, the best option would be either a cherry tree or liquidambar.
2. Forest Food Gardens
Fruit gardens are in trend these days. The host of the new podcast Growing Greener, Arit Anderson, has decided to try and create a food garden this year. The green enthusiast has planned on including many trees, some of which include hazelnut trees as well as fruit trees. Doing so can help us learn a lot more about plants and their medicinal as well as therapeutic benefits.
3. Cottage Garden
Cottage gardens are also in trend nowadays. They are informal, loose, and have a pretty style that also includes a mix of colors and heights. They are all about quintessentially British blooms and pastel hues! To create such a garden, the best thing you can start with is rethinking the outdoor scenes from movies such as The Little Woman or Greta Gerwig, and using that as a template. A classic cottage garden must include pastel shades, foxgloves, roses, and delphiniums.
