Watching one of 'Big Dreams Small Spaces' I think there was mention of having 7-10 different plants in a garden.
Isn't that the difference between "Garden Designers" and us mere mortals? They need to keep coming up with new ideas to justify their existence whereas we simply enjoy our gardens and gardening.
There is one regular contributor to various gardening programmes who looks down his nose and sneers at those who love the more traditional gardens. For him hanging baskets and colourful borders are just proof of how backward and unsophisticated the plebs are. To me his attitude is more like the kings new clothes!
For me there is only one rule in gardening - Grow what you want to.
