An Urban Courtyard
Developing a Six-acre Garden
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...
