Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden. Allium Nigrum and a very wide selection of allium bulbs in the UK, try Bloms. Cool colors in a hot garden: allium Nigrum is planted with veronica 'Kapitan', stachys byzantia, and a cristophii.
The hexagon cells that make up each COREgravel panel form a rigid honeycomb design that holds gravel in place and supports load distribution. The underside is a geotextile allowing water to drain easily and prevents weed growth. Interlocking system edges support assembly.
Have to go with xeriscaping and low water in the cottage garden. Like these plants in the Jardin Toledo 2009: detalle plantación patio. Jardín mediterraneo, grava, jardín seco. Gravel garden, xeriscaping, dry garden, mediterranean garden.
