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 Spires Gardening Services, Michelle Tarling

This beautiful border design has been created to show that there can be something in the garden for everyone, and that any size space can be shared to allow access for all.

Having grown up in the countryside surrounded by the beauty of nature, Michelle finds it heart breaking to see so much development around us, and this convenience destroying natural habitats and the decline of so many species around us.

Michelle wanted her design border to incorporate everything that she envisages the perfect garden to have – a food source, rest and relaxation, a social context, a habitat. This applies to humans, birds, animals and insects alike.

Combining these aspects allows the creation of a naturally organic, self-supporting eco system that can be enjoyed by on species – Our Space.
