October 30, 2009, Newsletter Issue #103: Cascading plants to soften the edges of raised beds

Tip of the Week

Gaps in a raised bed made of stone can be filled with cascading rock plants, such as the perennials phlox stonlonifera or subulata, hens and checks, thyme or false strawberry, or annual bacopa or million bells. Cascading plants can also blur and soften the edges of a severe frame, giving a more natural look to a man-made structure.
