Green Retreat

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 Alice Crespi Gardens

An escape from the noise, stress and fast-pace of modern life. This border creates an intimate, private space for two people to relax and talk; eye to eye, with no phone, no technology and no distractions. Urban gardens are often very small and Alice wants to prove that it's possible for a small, shady corner to become and invaluable place to rest, switch-off and find peace. There is a miniature pond amongst architectural foliage with a handful of shade tolerant flowering plants.
