Design and Plant a Mixed Border Summary

Design and Plant a Mixed Border by Noel Kingsbury

The mixed border is important in ornamental gardens, and the range of plants suitable for use is vast. This book addresses a theme of relevance to gardeners: how to combine trees, shrubs, climbers, perennials, bulbs and annuals into a scheme that achieves year-round interest in the garden. It demonstrates how to build up a border plant by plant, making the most of plant shape, texture, colour and seasons. After information on the mixed border in garden design (function, shape and size, backdrop and small spaces), the book looks at choosing a site, taking into account such issues as aspect and soil conditions. Next, a chapter on planning and planting discusses shrubs, perennials, ornamental grasses, bulbs, climbers, annuals and fruit and vegetables. Finally, there are practical points such as preparing the site, selecting plants, planting and border maintenance.
