This year we felt it was time for a renovation of our border’s plantings. Each year we like to trial new plants and old favorites as well as try out new design ideas to inspire us and you.
We are also testing a broad range of salvias (in the border and in pots) and other long- and late-blooming plants such as agastache and agapanthus, to name a few.
The border is simple rectangle divided into four beds – numbered from north to south – by three pathways running east to west more-or-less. The paths are not solid divisions: while each bed has a color scheme none are adhered to rigidly, there being a bleeding of colors into neighboring beds for artistic as well as ecological reasons.
*The border garden is a living, breathing entity that changes constantly -- these photos merely caption moments of beauty. The new plantings are best experienced in person and often!*
