Regency urn


RHS Harlow Carr  - 'Set pieces' are everywhere - plantings in tubs, urns and other containers adding height and complementing the planting in beds and borders. A few years ago the BBC commissioned a series of small plots for a TV programme: 'Gardens Through Time', to show how the gardens of middle-class homes have evolved and how garden fashions have changed through the years.  This planted urn was part of the Regency garden, harking back to the early 1800s when ordinary people (not 'the landed gentry') started to actively cultivate gardens.
