Bring a Cottage Garden Border Indoors
A garden border creates order and harmony from a variety of plant shapes, heights and colors. Bring the creative containment of nature's complexity inside by placing different blooms in thin, oblong troughs and angular glass containers.

Soft hues of blue, pink, mauve and purple recreate the pastel shades of a traditional summer border, while a splash of strong pink provides a lively focal point.
This design, with its carefully planned, graduated structure and height is an exciting way of bringing a summer garden in full bloom indoors.
Use spear- and globe-shaped flowers en masse to create an architectural look to the overall design. Flowers with the shortest stems sit at the front of the display.
