What does English Garden mean to you? I'm going to be seeing a potential client tomorrow that is looking to add an English Garden look to her back yard. Does anyone have any advice on good sources of information regarding what an English Garden entails? I have a good base knowledge of plants and design, but have never designed an English Garden per se. I immediately think of lavender, boxwoods, delphinium, foxglove, things like this. I'm looking for what defines something as an English garden as opposed to just a perennial garden besides off course the boxwoods. Also, what perennials and annuals come to mind for an English garden. Thanks for the help....just trying to be better prepared. Even if someone could just steer me toward a good website, I'd appreciate it.
