Fancy a border edged in willow wand?
The garden plants in this flower and herb border pack are all suitable for planting in the garden. Surrounding a raised bed with natural willow wand fencing just adds that little extra natural touch to the garden.
A raised bed surrounded in willow wand fencing is easy to make. Just place a sturdy fence pole in each corner and use garden string to tie on these ready made screens made of willow wand – dead easy.
Use garden sheeting to line the inside of your willow wand fencing and add extra soil to the raised bed. If you are pleased with how it looks you can make other similar raised beds and every now and again alternate the planting. One could have all the wildflowers and another perhaps function as your cutting patch for indoor arrangements. Anything’s possible!
To create a sense of depth, stand a sturdy climbing frame or ‘pyramid’ in the middOrder here for this borderle of the flower and herb border and plant up with sweet peas (Lathyrus).
