Spring Combination Ideas, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


This romantic and delicate planting includes mostly plants that are chalk and lime tolerant. Ranging from creamy white to blush and deepening to clarets and blues in the meadow, their soft colors create a sense of exquisite tranquillity and deep relaxation. A wonderful way to celebrate late spring and early summer.

Most plants are deer and rabbit resistant and won prestigious awards!
