A Resilient Garden in a Changing Climate

the willow wand

The Beautiful Borders, sponsored by The Willow Wand, is unique to BBC Gardeners’ World Live, packed with take-home ideas of how to squeeze the most into your garden, be it growing veg in tight spaces, eye-catching planting or clever use of materials.

The 2019 theme “Our Space” challenges designers to be adventurous and creative with a bijou spot, giving it a sense of purpose and bringing wonder and delight to all. With over twenty-five Borders expected this year, the area will be awash with flair, variety and vibrancy, and of course ideas that can be infused into even the smallest area of the garden.

As our climate changes and weather events become more unpredictable Our Space needs to be made resilient. This border highlights beautiful plants that thrive in both damp and dry conditions with the elegant water butt planter as its apex. In summer plants cool the air by 2-4 degrees but they need water to do that. It is vital that we all start to collect water – to collect when it is wet so we can water when it is dry. Even the smallest garden can collect water to sustain our space.
