Embracing Change

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.

Designed by Lucy Miller, Flower Power Gardens

The changing climate will have a big impact on the way we garden in the future, requiring adaptable planting and gardening methods. The Embracing Change border aims to provide planting solutions utilising the concept of rain garden design, channelling rain water runoff to planting areas. The border contains plants that tolerate both wet /dry conditions, shade and drought, whilst still providing a year-round display, appealing to wildlife and with minimal maintenance. Popular worldwide, rain gardens are uncommon in the UK, BBC Gardeners’ World Live could provide an ideal opportunity to educate and inform visitors of its benefits.
