Great planter. The right compost & grow  a tree

Choosing the style of tree you want is the first step.
You may  appreciate  the constancy of an evergreen, or prefer  watching the seasons take effect on a
deciduous  tree. Perhaps you want flowers in spring  and autumn fruit, or a tree for the terrace in summer that will cheer  up  the conservatory in winter. On a south-facing  patio,  a tree can offer
welcome  shade, while on a balcony  or roof garden it could  provide  screening.
Trees with unusual  or interesting foliage attract attention. The yellow-gold new  leaves of Robinia
pseudoacacia 'Frisia' in spring offer shimmering colour  and gentle movement in a breeze.
Dwarf acers  and maples have  spreading foliage  in arresting colours, ranging from  the softest  pinks to bright crimsons  and  oranges.
The red-barked  dogwood (Cornus alba) comes into its own in winter once its leaves  have  fallen, revealing brilliant  red stems.
A tree with a strong shape will

provide  a focal  point to a patio or terrace.  There  are five main tree shapes  to  choose from:  the spreading umbrella or tiered shape  of a typical  acer; a round-headed standard; a cone or pyramid; a tall, thin columnar shape, like a pencil cypress; and the popular  weeping shape. A tree will  add structure  to a collection of planters, and provide year-round  interest  in a garden.
For an unusual  outline and soft blue  foliage  try  the weeping cedar,  Cedrus

atlantica 'Glauca  Pendula'. Many conifers  also offer a wide  choice  of shapes,  sizes and colours  and will  grow well in planters.
Some  trees can be clipped trained  or grafted  to create an interesting shape. For example, the slow growing compact Japanese holly (Ilex crenate) has  box like foliage which can be shaped into a ball or cone.
Trees can  produce fruit too, even in planters. The morello cherry (Prunus cerasus)  will bear fryit even in a north facing position. Train it against a wall as a fan so that its branches are warmed by the heat  from the wall and any available sun.
A planter   orchard  of pear ''Terrace Pearl',  peach "Terrace Amber Dwarf) and nectarine "Terrace Ruby Dwarf", will give a spring blossom  and, in a  warm sheltered  site,  a good crop of autumn fruit. For a  Mediterranean  feel, grow a fig or an olive tree.
But remember that, although olive trees enjoy summer outdoors in a sunny location, they need to be moved into a frost free place for winter.
