Herbaceous border


All those keen gardeners out there will correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is what we in England call an 'herbaceous border' (and in North America, a perennial border?)  Whatever, I thought it looked magnificent, even in the small space of this back garden.  One of my favourite gardens from this year's 'Open Gardens', it was a steeply sloping site cleverly arranged into three level terraces.  Each little 'room' was delightful.

  2. Delightful. We were lucky to have ours in a field so we could prune and dig from BOTH sides...

  3. Yes, we would call it a perennial border over here. It is wonderful. I love the English gardens. (Heck, I love American gardens, too.)

  7. Oh how beautiful! And the truth of it is, someone still has to pull those weeds to get it to look like that. :-)
