The long Border, AKA the Barry Manilow Border, is a garden border full of colour made up of annuals, bulbs, perennials, shrubs, roses and grasses to make a very colorful part of the garden.
This is an all season border. The Dahlias and Cannas take centre stage in late summer.
The roses and annuals are best in spring.

Coloured borders.

The single coloured borders are a experiment with colour.
We are using a main colour, eg. pink then adding a back up colour like plum.
We are experimenting with blue, red, orange, apricot, peach and yellow and of course plum!  More Info »
