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.

Haze

Designed by Greg Smith

Haze is a border designed around a strong colour contrast of purples, yellows, greens and browns. It is loosely inspired by the mist and smokey haze that is known to linger at the base of the hills. Plants such as cotinus and a mixture of grasses are used in the border to evoke this scenery in the minds of the visitors. Mental rods feature as a nod to the areas working past, whilst providing perching branches for birds.

The border is intended to add colour and happiness to post – industrial towns such as those in the south wales valleys.
