Old fashioned is still ok.

Although naturalistic  planting has become fashionable , not all designers rate this highly.

Many prefer the “traditional ” style English garden.

This classical style is made up of shrubs and perennials.

It looks good all through the year.

Rosemary Verey’s garden in the Cotswolds in a good example of this.

Lawns are featured.

Grasses do not take “pride of place”. Perennials include Poppy, Lychnis, Salvia  and Poeny. Bulbs are important. Climbers may be Cematis.

Shrubs include hydranger and box balls.

We should therefore feel free to choose whatever style suits us best.

All these styles have a place in English Gardens.
