Making words with plants
Making words and designs from plants fascinates the public as it’s something few people do in their own gardens. The most famous example is Edinburgh’s floral clock which is known worldwide. In North Berwick East Lothian council gardeners annually commemorate a local organisation this time Rotary. Most bedding plants don’t work as they are too tall or floppy. The words use Pyrethrum Golden Moss and other parts use succulents such as Echeverias and Senecios. Incorporating some coloured sand reduces the number of plants needed and helps access for maintenance. However you have to watch as a local cat sees it as a giant litter tray!
