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.

Designed by Rosie Wilkins, RW Landscape Design

On a planet ‘not so far away’ ... The border comprises plants that are all edible in some way. The plants are selected for a dry, arid landscape with poor soil - the sort of harsh environment you might find on a planet within our galaxy. Such conditions are becoming increasingly prominent on our own planet, particularly in urban landscapes. In a time where high quality outdoor space is at a premium, this border explores how such areas can be maximized for both purpose and leisure.
