How can I plant a blosson tree?

Hello !
I am wanting to get a blossom tree (maybe more than one) for my garden. I have a perfect spot for them, sheltered and near a patio. But I don't know where to start! 
Do I have to buy the actual tree, or can I get seeds or cuttings or whatever? 
If I do have to buy an actual tree, can I get one from any garden centre? 
Obviously the cheapest option would be better !
Thanks in advance !
Laura

    You need a tree.  :)
    It also depends what you mean by a 'blossom tree'. 
    Have a look in garden centres or online at specialists. There are plenty, but some growers might be short of stock.
    They aren't cheap. Depending on the type of tree you want, you'll be starting at around £30 upwards, depending on maturity. A more mature specimen needs more knowledge to help it establish.

    It also depends on how much space you have. They grow.

    Some advice here that may also help. Most garden centres should have at least a small selection, but remember that you get what you pay for. Good preparation when planting as well  :)

    Lots of types of trees have blossom though, so you'd need to have a look at various sites/GCs to see what you like.  :)
    Take a look here to see the different types of tree available, from Prunus [cherry] to Amelanchier, and apples etc
