Pots with panache!
Aren't these magnificent?
The simplicity and the generous proportions are what makes these look so stunning.
They are at Harlow Carr in North Yorkshire - so glad you found them inspirational too Lucy. (see comments 27 August).
The new curator and head gardener there is Elizabeth Balmforth, only 34 years old, and the first woman to head an RHS garden. She trained with the National Trust at Beningbrough Hall (I worked there too, but not at the same time.)
White cosmos and cleome.
It pays to be bold....
