The instant mature garden

Located in Ealing Broadway

The planting plan only shows the placement of the main feature shrubs and trees – the rest of the borders are our well-known mixture of reliable perennials, evergreen groundcovers and low shrubs.

Some beds are serving as a focal point; so separate detailed planting plans are necessary. This herb bed is easily reached form the kitchen and will include many aromatic culinary herbs to use.

Planting during late spring gives us the advantage of seeing the garden with almost mature sized perennials even with the flowers on – creating instant colourful borders within a short period of time.

Most of the borders will need at least two years to look full and mature, like this one with multistem Amelanchier trees, ornamental grasses and shade-loving perennials and evergreen groundcovers.
