Think Again Garden

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 Jess Hadfield, Fill Your Heart Gardens

The 'Think Again Garden' aims to reclaim an unloved part of Ladybrook Primary School, to create a place where the children can learn and practice 'positive thinking'. A path winds past the Thought Tree, decorated with 'positive notes' written by the pupils, and placed randomly to signal the importance of mental well-being at all stages of life. A vegetable garden of medicinal herbs, pollinating flowers and companion planting encourages children to tend, train and taste. It reinforces the value of exercise, healthy eating and the need for balance and nurture. The materials are modest, sustainable and realistic. It’s an inclusive design to be enjoyed by everyone.
