Main Herbaceous Border

Main Perennial Border: photograph by Clive Nichols16ft deep and created unashamedly in the Jekyll style.  7ft at the back and 1ft at the front.  Dark blue through the colour spectrum to pale peach over a distance of 75ft but still with taller plants at the front and statement colours where you would not expect them.  The plants here are chosen for their precise colour and their ability to stand competition.  Across the path on the south side is a parallel bed that carries the majority of our collection of phlox.
