This week at Chelsea Flower Show on the BBC, Rachel de Thame is providing ‘planting recipies’. The first is what Rachel is calling ‘Nouvelle Cuisine’ as seen in The Telegraph Garden. Rachel’s advice is to keep a simple palette of just a few plants and avoid over filling your garden with too many varieties.
Plants in the Nouvelle Cuisine recipe include:
- Anchusa azurea ‘Loddon Royalist’ (Bugloss ‘Loddon Royalist’)
- Gladiolus communis subsp. byzantinus (Byzantine gladiola)
- Euphorbia palustris (Marsh spurge)
- Foeniculum vulgare (Common fennel)
