WILD GARDEN | keukenhof 2021
JUB designer Carien van Boxtel's design for 'Wild Garden' is an ode to William A. Robinson, (1838 - 1936), an Irish gardener who pioneered the concept of the 'Cottage Garden'. He began planting mixed flower borders in a more casual manner as a counterpart to the rigid Victorian 'bedding'. He was a great advocate of using naturalising bulbs. This style made an important contribution to biodiversity, as many species used provide nectar and pollen for bee and butterfly species.
