The West Dean gardens near Chichester in the UK

This week Rachel looks at how they create such amazingly colourful herbaceous borders for different times of year…

The West Dean herbaceous borders do a great job of providing summer colour with the use of repeat planting of key plants like the tall yellow Kniphofia and soft blue Perovskia.

The blue/ purple Aster flowers also play a big part of colour scheme and provide a different shape flower against the yellow Kniphofias.
