Bouquet garden and country flower beds
The Bouquet Garden will definitely appeal to a summer resident who does not recognize the exquisite simplicity of new wave flower beds and the rigor of formal compositions.
It is for those gardeners who love bright cut flowers, but do not want the site to look like a garden of flowers.
Here, flowering plants are represented by complex, sometimes chaotic mixes, formed according to the principle of taking into account the needs of the «participants» and the degree of «beauty» in them just rolls over.
Therefore, at any time, from such a flower garden, without violating the aesthetics of the garden, you can cut luxurious specimens for a bouquet.
At «bouquet» landscape, there are many fans among fan gardeners who are ready to carefully look after such beloved dahlias, irises, peonies, roses and other representatives of the flower «aristocracy».
Bright contrasts — the most complex type of flower mixes. It is here that it is easy to «overdo it» with the number of colors. However, one has only to study which colors are best combined with each other and wow, the composition looks elegant and not overloaded …
IMPORTANT: you can extinguish the brightness of the contrast of colors with the help of a splash of white, and it doesn’t matter if it is flowers, leaves or decorative elements….
- mix (alternate) plants with different types of inflorescences, and the flower garden will turn out to be balanced;
- sprinkle bunches of ornamental grasses into the mix — against their background, each flower will look especially distinct.
NUANCE: many primroses and letniki are good during the flowering period, therefore they can be grown in pots somewhere in the corner of the garden, and when the buds are tied, dig into the flower garden right in the pot.
As far as a photo of Sarah Raven’s bouquet garden from an exhibition in Chelsea:
Agree, our decor is the best!
In the foreground, in front of the blue delphiniums, chalcedony lychnis (red caps), yellow eremurus, a pale purple variety of cyanosis, were planted in a flower garden. All plants are tall.
Bright and chaotic summer composition of milkweed (in a bucket), roses, poppies, crocosmia and lupine. Quite a traditional country set)))
A duet of re-blooming roses and purple scabiosa will delight the eye from June until September.
What else to read on the site:
Blue is perhaps the most desirable color on a hot summer day. It is associated with coolness, moreover, it is not so common in nature, which cannot be said about garden varieties …
Flower garden by the bench — garden cinema
Any resting place in the garden, be it a patio, a bench or an arbor, is a small cinema hall from which an overview of a certain part of the territory opens. Here you can spend a lot of time and explore the surroundings in detail. Therefore, this corner of the garden must be impeccable.
