In this Gardeners’ World programme clip, Monty Don shows you how to plant two easy-to-grow perennials into a dry sunny border. His first choice is a tactile, feathery grass, Stipa tenuissima, which contrasts beautifully with the elegant upright white spires of Verbascum ‘Flush of White’. Planted in groups for maximum impact, both plants are hardy, graceful and trouble-free.
