We all curate our instagram feeds with forensic precision. a lot of smoke and mirrors goes on, and my feed is no different! in the interests of candour, here are two views of my border, taken a few days apart. after several weeks away from home, i came home to this w**d infested nightmare! it took two days of solid weeding to get it back to how you see it now! 😅 #mygarden #inmygarden #mygardentoday #perennials #herbaceousborder #weeds #tuin #eigentuin #trädgård #giardino #jardin #jardim #garten

'we depend on ourselves for our happiness so following a creative urge is essential to that happiness.' - jinny boom

making gardens, using plants as a painter would use colours with the added bonuses of texture, scent, movement and sound, coming up with new ideas of how to use and fill space, and most of all bringing joy and a smile to my clients' faces all form part of the creating urge that make me happy.
a non-gardener recently asked me, why gardens, what do you like about plants, what makes them fascinating? i suppose apart from the pleasure of growing something from seeds or cuttings, or the pleasure of discovering something new every single day, of always learning because of their amazing diversity, plants are important to me also because they allow my creativity to surface.
as you can see in these photos, i like to use perennials that mix and mingle. planting shouldn't be static and regimented and i usually stay away from dwarf varieties that are bred to be compact. i like things to spill over, much like a haircut that looks messy but takes hours to accomplish.
my ideal garden would be a romantic, cottage garden with an eclectic, perhaps exotic mix including wildlife elements.

Salvia 'marcus harvey' is proving to be an outstanding plant - just like the man he was. #marcusharvey #hillviewrareplants #legend #perennials #nursery #flowers #garden #rare #unusual
