English Garden Foundation Plants

English garden foundation plants are commonly considered to be plants that can be grown in the back garden, used for foundation plantings or growing at the front of a house. Foundation plantings provide an attractive border around your home and hide unattractive areas such as paving, sheds etc. These will often consist mainly of herbaceous perennials, providing summer flowers and foliage effects with interest throughout the seasons. A number of small trees, shrubs and ornamental grasses can also be included in foundation plantings, providing seasonal foliage effects and year-round structure to the planting scheme.
