Excellent article. Looking forward to reading more. I can learn a lot from Wigandia.
Michael all we need wherever we live to produce a comprehensive garden is a decent set of eyes..the themes and concepts and indeed plants are all to be had in all our regions..we can have indigenous and quite probably endemic creations.Once a 'core' is found the rest is playtime!
But gardens have become fashion items to be draped and filled with all the baubles (plants included) and trinkets of the tasteful (debatable) magazines and books..GI for example is the 'Vogue' of the garden world..all glitter and very little gold!
