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 Winterbourne Centre for Horticulture, Birmingham, designed by Helen Kelly and Rachel Wells

This space has been created as a border in memory of a loved one from Ireland.  Plants are a reminder that life will continue. This is a space created to inspire others to plant flowers in their own gardens to help with their process of grieving. Specific plants and colours have been chosen that remind the designers of that person. Using fragrant plants is important; the olfactory sense is one of the senses most associated with memory. Scent will attract beneficial wildlife to support a healthy ecosystem within the border.
