I’ve been staying up late at night watching all the BBC gardening shows I can find on youtube, and one was on herbaceous borders. The examples they showed were stunning, although I detest such borders when they have a bowling alley of grass down the middle. Anyway, it got me thinking, and I believe that a mixed border is my favorite kind of garden.
Tracy diSabato-Aust has several wonderful books and one of my favorite is The Well-Designed Mixed Garden. In particular, I love the mix of textures in mixed garden, especially when a few evergreens are mixed in. Even just seeing the trunk of a tree does something really interesting for a mixed garden.
So that’s what this week’s Feature Friday is about.
