Work won­ders with wa­ter

Garden News (UK) - - Garden Of The Week -

Monet’s gar­den at Giverny has a large, me­an­der­ing pond which he used for his iconic wa­terlily paint­ings. But far more or­di­nary spa­ces can use wa­ter to re­flect plant­ing and light. In tiny gar­dens you can evoke the aquatic ef­fect by us­ing old glass mir­rors, acrylic gar­den mir­rors or a pol­ished me­tal sur­face. And even if you have no wa­ter at all, you can al­ways in­stall a brightly coloured Ja­panese bridge!

If you only have a small pond try dwarf wa­ter lily ‘Perry’s Baby Red’
