With the tree purchasing season underway the Woodland Trust is encouraging forest nurseries to register interest in a voluntary scheme launching in the New Year which assures the provenance of native trees.

The charity’s scheme aims to reduce the reliance on imported planting stock and the risk of importing pests and diseases.

18 nurseries have so far registered an interest in the Trust’s voluntary ‘UK Sourced and Grown Assurance Scheme’(UKSG) which guarantees that those trees grown by participating nurseries marked with the UKSG badge are raised from seed sourced only from the UK and grown on in the UK for their entire lifespan.

Why this Garden Works


Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
