Can we be moving into summer? The Alliums are out in force, even A. cristophii normally a little later than the others is ready to burst. My Roses are covered with buds too, the exquisite 'Souvenir du Docteur Jamain' which has been ever so slow to establish is smothered in flowers, in deep shades of crimson that gets darker with age, i can't pass it with out having to stick my nose deep into the petals, the Rosa 'Comte de Chambord' which i planted bare rooted into frozen ground the week before christmas (!please do not take this as a recommendation!) is also smothered in buds i can't wait, those two are most definitely my two most favorite roses at present so it is a treat to finally have them both in my own garden.

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
