Planting Schemes

Jo’s artistic approach and knowledge of horticulture help her to create beautiful planting schemes that bring her gardens alive.   When the plants are happy in their environment and working in harmony with one another then the garden will flourish and continually evolve through the seasons and years.

From drifts of grasses and perennials to herb gardens, roses and meadows  - please take a look at some of our planting schemes.
