Having had quite a dramatic revamp, this new herbaceous border is beginning to take on much more colour. We removed some old and very woody Hebes, moved the Dragons over by a yard and transplanted all the roses underplanting with Pulmonarias. We now have two herbaceous borders either side of the Well Path that sort of mimic each other. When sitting in the conservatory (usually when it's too wet to be gardening!) we can now see our own garden and not just Rob's lovely orchards.
Funny how the term 'herbaceous' ie pertaining to herbs has come to mean a planned mixed border containing mixed perennials usually reducing in height from back to front. How did that ever happen?
