: In Your Garden: Planning and Planting the Herbaceous Border

C. H. Middleton
The herbaceous border, or mixed border as it generally is, can be a blaze of colour the summer through.
Those seeing it in its glory might well suppose that it is planted anyhow. It is but one more example of the art that conceals art.
A border of this kind has to be designed and made. Curves and corners are more attractive than straight lines. Planting bold groups of one kind of plant avoids the monotony of rows and gives masses of colour. Remember to dig deep and to plant tall growers at the back, or they will hide the short ones. Above all, do not overcrowd. Stake any plant that will need it while it is still short, and tie it as it grows, for, once the stalk is bent or twisted, all the tying in the world will never straighten it again. These are a few of the hints that C.H. Middleton is to give this afternoon.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
