The borders encourage exploration and adventure and visitors are welcome to roam in amongst the mighty plants to further enjoy the experience.

The plantings consist of large groupings of each variety, planted in a free flowing style, which contrasts leaf forms, stems, stalks, flower shapes and textures.
