One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A garden border containing herbaceous, typically perennial, flowering plants.
- ‘Anyone who looks forward to brandishing rake and hoe in retirement and then does not do much beyond simple maintenance work in the garden - the status-quo herbaceous border, same old window boxes - is not likely to achieve very much.’
- ‘Lilium candidum, L. Martagon and L. tigrinum succeed in well-drained sandy loam and may with advantage be planted in the herbaceous border, all except candidum being planted at least 6 to 8 inches in depth.’
- ‘Outside, the impressive half acre of gardens includes a number of mature and specimen trees, herbaceous borders, colourful flowerbeds and immaculate lawns.’
- ‘The grounds at the front and the back are extensively landscaped with mature trees, foliage, herbaceous borders, extensive lawned gardens and a paved patio area.’
- ‘Another popular flower is the ‘gladiolus’, which is much in demand for use in herbaceous borders, bedding, rockeries and ornamental pots.’
