Border in a Box ready-made design kit and book combination makes a thoughtful gift to celebrate events such as new home, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and retirement. It includes one garden design kit plus a book and journal.
Each design measures 3m x 1m. Though you can easily adapt them to fit small spaces or raised beds – or use multiple design boxes for a larger and cohesive garden.
Here’s what you’ll get:
- A garden border design template of what to plant where
- A mood board showing how the plants look together
- A plant list with photos, flowering times and general care
- Advice on how to prepare the border for your new plants
- Top tips on how to add further interest to your border
- Two packets of seeds to scatter in between plants which will flower from spring to autumn
- How to get started book and journal
The book and journal has been created to help anyone new to gardening and it includes the basic information such as
- How to sow and grow a beautiful border from seed (the most cost effective way to grow a garden from scratch)
- What compost do I need?
- What tools should I buy to start with
- How to create colour schemes and themes
- Planting the right plant in the right place
- How much water does a plant need
The list becomes overwhelming! So I’ve written this 82 page book which covers all the basic information in an easy to read and understand format. It helps boost your confidence to create a beautiful garden from scratch without the overwhelm.
There’s a monthly journal for you to make notes about your garden as you go along. Each month there’s a list of seeds you can sow and reminders of jobs to do, plus a gardening related quote. Its all beautifully illustrated and photographed.
As the saying goes ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ but this book will help you to create a garden easily and quickly without green-fingers or horticultural expertise – everyone can have a gorgeous garden!
