A New Border...
While I'm all in favour of evolution in the garden, taking the long-term view and letting a garden develop, when it comes to individual borders this can allow your garden to underachieve, to say the least: a gift of a plant here, something that looked nice at a plant sale there, your neighbours' cast-offs and of course bulbs everywhere... and nothing much to look at once July is over. Ripping out and starting again, planting to a theme, with respect for height and spread and flowering time can achieve startling results...
