A formal (or tidier) cottage raised bed?
I've been moving my garden in the direction of traditional cottagesque design. I have this one spot that is driving me nuts. It is a 3x6 raised garden bed that I initially had different plans for. I keep throwing annuals in there hoping something works. Its in a part of the yard that is full sun, but due to location, is always the last place I get to tend. Its always messy chaotic looking (and not in a good way). I thought doing a formal pattern planting or just filling it with one type of plant might be a way to tidy it up a bit. My husband suggests lavender, but my husband thinks planting lavender will solve every garden problem.... I'm trying to decide best coarse of action. Should it be lower growing or broad leaved, etc.? Thoughts or ideas? Thanks!
