Beautiful British gardens are the envy of the world, and of course you don’t have to travel to England to experience the charm and tranquillity of an English garden, they are very versatile and can thrive anywhere.
These beautiful gardens are so popular probably because of the natural feeling they evoke, some gardens that are open to the public just look as if no planning was necessary to create such beauty, and many a tourist will go back to their own gardens and try to replicate.
To try and replicate any lovely garden you have seen choose three to four main colours, create stunning contrast by using perennial blooms of opposing colours, then achieve variety by using many shades and tints of the main colours, roses, delphiniums, foxglove, geranium plants can all give a stunning effect.
To give an eye catching show, group flowers together without being symmetrical you can create balance and harmony within the bed with the shape of the blooms, leaf size, and texture. An English garden is all about surprise, create borders that are curvy, pack with colour and varying heights, plant an odd shrub here and there like lavender plants, miniature Acer trees, with their lovely shade of red leaves, will contribute to the interest in a garden.
Any garden that is open to the public is of course huge, but it is possible to create a similar show in a small area, a garden can give a feeling of mystery by adding an ‘accessory’
Use containers and plant begonia plants, or pansies, petunias, and place the containers creatively, use bold colours for your pots, and plant with contrasting flower colours such as yellows, reds, purple, all this is seen in some current day English gardens, and well worth replicating in your own space.
Many gardeners want to see a garden full with flowers, but don’t be afraid to cut your flowers the more you cut, the more blooms will come especially with annuals and roses, and of course you can encourage some early season perennials like perennial salvias to re-bloom.
