GGG...did you mention a knot garden?
I thought I saw a post about you planning a knot garden near your potager??!
I love knot gardens too. The precise shapes, the diversity of texture in such a formal plan/layout. I have been considering combining a knot garden in the center of my potager as a central island that will be surrounded by the raised beds.
I was wondering if you could talk a bit about that? Will you be using boxwood as the outline? Will you be filling the spaces with herbs or flowers? What other plants can you think of that can be used as the outline of the geometric shapes that could be maintained to hold their shape and formality?
I'm not able to use boxwood at my home. I tested it last year (five different varieties) with a knot garden idea in the back of my mind. The sun, cold, winds,humidity, snow etc. here, are just too extreme, and all the boxwood I planted last year is now white leaved and colorless. I can't get lavendar to take here either.
