Best BordersBook - 1994
In "Best Borders, " Tony Lord looks behind the scenes to discover how top gardeners tackle a defining, yet often neglected, element of the garden: the border. He examines 12 different herbaceous and mixed borders, providing an in-depth analysis of both the quality and variety of the plantings. Illuminating interviews with their designers, and with the gardeners who maintain them, reveal how each border's distinctive style and individuality are attained. Stunning, full-color photographs of each border throughout the year are supplemented by detailed planting plans and hands-on tips and techniques. The planting schemes, based on borders created by some of England's most innovative gardeners, range from formal double-borders to artfully designed beds for a narrow, city garden to rich plantings providing year-round interest. With a wealth of expert advice and inspiring ideas, "Best Borders" is an essential resource for every discerning gardener.
