Three Ornamental Trees That Will Thrive In Pots In Your Courtyard Garden

Trees are a beautiful and inspiring addition to a garden. However, if you only have a very small courtyard garden, then you may feel that there isn't enough room to add trees to enhance the space. One solution is to add some ornamental trees in pots. This is a great way to add colour and vibrancy to your courtyard and enjoy the visual and emotional benefits that trees provide. Here are three beautiful ornamental tree varieties that will thrive in the confines of a pot and bring your courtyard garden to life.

1. Bay Tree

Bay trees are a rich, fragrant tree with dark green leaves. They will happily grow equally well in a pot or in the soil. They're evergreen, so you'll be able to enjoy their dense foliage all through the year. Bay trees are often used to create hedges, so they will also provide excellent privacy as they mature.

Bay trees are hardy and can be pruned to create a pleasing shape or simply to keep them in a tidy state. As an added bonus, the bay leaves are edible and make a great addition to soups, casseroles or pasta sauces.

2. Dwarf Magnolia Tree

Like its larger relative, the Dwarf Magnolia is beautiful and elegant tree with large, glossy leaves. It's also evergreen and will provide you with stunning and exquisitely perfumed white flowers through the summer and autumn months.

Dwarf Magnolia's will thrive in most climates and are resistant to frosty weather. If you're in a location that has hot summers, then you'll need to ensure that they are watered frequently to keep them hydrated and healthy.

3. Japanese Maple Tree

Japanese Maples make a wonderful addition to any courtyard garden. Although they're evergreen and will maintain their foliage, the leaves will change colour during the course of the year. They'll change from a soft green in spring which deepens in summer. The winter and autumn will bring on a fiery and vibrant mix of deep reds and oranges.

Japanese Maples are happy to be pot-bound as long as the soil is kept moist. They naturally grow into a ball-like shape, so they won't require pruning unless you want to stop them from growing too tall.

All of these ornamental trees are available to purchase from your local wholesale plant nursery. When planted in a stylish pot, these trees will create a mini-forest haven in your small courtyard garden.
