ls are planted first the location of the trees will probably bechanged to suit the flowers, instead of the other way around; with a finalresult quite different, and probably very much inferior, to what was orig-inally intended. A SAMPLE PLAN To exemplify these principles in detail, suppose we have a garden to beplanted. We will leave aside all consideration of trees, assuming that part INTRODUCTORY 7 of the plan to have been settled, and study solely the composition of thehardy herbaceous border, which is the immediate subject of this book.Let us assume that our border is six feet wide, with access from one sideonly. It might be eight or ten feet wide if it could be reached from bothsides, or it might be as narrow as four feet (less than that is hardly suffi-cient for perennials), but six feet is a good average. We will also assume thatthis border is fairly long, but for our purposes we will only consider a stretchof twenty feet, remembering, however, that it continues on at each end.
