'White Gardens' never seem to go out of fashion. Whilst design trends come and go, there is something very elegant, classical and yes refreshing about a 'white garden' - all the tones acting in harmony, the whole being so much more than the sum of its parts.
If you have ever aspired to create one in your garden, Rosy has designed a border that can be easily replicated and built upon to inspire your imagination. The 12 plants included will all thrive in a partially shaded or sunny spot, i.e. about 4 - 6 hours of sun a day and a reasonable soil, which means fairly fertile, moist but free draining.
As with our other plans, you can scale the area and quantity of plants up or down to suit your garden. If you need help with this please contact us, we would be delighted to help.
