Schools out for summer

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 Roots to Fruits Midlands Ltd designed by Jonathan Ensell

An education sensory theme designed for school grounds to engage learners with gardening and plants. It represents elements of the national curriculum. Plants and visual aids will demonstrate aspects of the educational experience. The central feature will be an ‘old school’ desk to bring back memories for young and old.

English is represented through Shakespeare mathematics will be seen in an Abacus that utilises moving plants as the beads science by glass tubes showing the growing process in action. Geography will be seen in a volcano that is represented in a rockery. History by semi hidden dinosaur bones and a roman mosaic. Music by hanging pots that will chime all tied together using average plants that grow in most typical English garden settings.
