Last week, RWG began a new series about the colour green in gardens, and as a colour, mostly gardeners overlook on how effectively it can be really used.

Today texture, form and structure is on the menu for the green garden series.

Trees, and shrubs, evergreen bamboo, perennial flowers, annual flowers, and grasses form the structure of your garden, but within that structure, you can play with the texture or foliage or leaves of your plants.

Each has a different impact-plants with large leaves, plants with fine or velvety foliage can all be arranged for a pleasing mix.

It’ s only limited by your imagination.
