I am redesigning my front garden, and want to make it semi-formal by using box topiary 'cones & balls' in the border. I do not like the current trend of using stone 'chips' to cover the earth.
Can you advise on what would be effective to underplant the topiary, without engulfing it ? I'm rather drawn to the formal gardens in the great French chateau estates, but would appreciate your thoughts.
