We’ve all heard of shrubs in the garden and know what they look like, but what does the word mean and what is the difference between a shrub and a tree?
Shrubs are defined as woody plants that tend to have a rounded shape. They can be deciduous or evergreen and can grace your garden with flowers, berries, and colourful foliage and stems.
The main difference between shrubs and trees is that shrubs have several main stems growing from the ground, whereas a tree has one trunk.
Whether your garden is cottage style or a courtyard setting, there’s a shrub fit for your space. Providing structure, colour, fruits and foliage, your garden won’t be short of interest.
