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.
