What is it that makes a planting border look good all year round?

In this video Rachel takes a look at the world famous Beth Chatto gravel garden for inspiration.

Evergreens certainly play their role in the winter months but don’t discount grasses and herbaceous perennials. Even though they might not be at their best in the winter, they still offer shape and form – essential ingredients to any planting border.

And for Halloween you can spice up your planting borders with carved pumpkins!

Plants like the large leaf Bergenias are excellent in the autumn and winter. Their leaves are evergreen but turn glorious colours in the cold weather. And when planted with the Mexican Feather grass (Stipa tenuissima) as pictured above, makes for a great combination.
