Heaths (Erica) and Heathers (Calluna) are best en masse. Drifts of their varied forms and flower and foliage colors blend beautifully. They’re also fine companions for Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Pieris and other acid-loving plants in the evergreen shrubbery. The timid might try adding a few winter bloomers to the herb or perennial border for year-round interest. But be forewarned—to plant one is to want them all!
17th century farmhouse in Devon - Over time entrances had been moved and the impact of the space was lost. The main route into the house was re-established, forming an outer court by planting ancient espalier pears & commissioning a bespoke oak gate, inspired by wooden spindles from within the house, as the main entrance through the walls. The front court itself is now filled with fragrant lavender, violas, geraniums, and mature yew topiaries. - Arne Maynard Garden Design
