While there is certainly such a thing as a formal English garden, when most people hear that term they think of lush curvy beds overflowing with fragrant flowers and dotted with evergreens and shrubs, winding paths, big shade trees, and benches tucked here and there. To me an English garden looks like someone went out and threw a huge bunch of seeds in the air and let them grow where they may.
The very best part of an English garden? When you pack in lots of plants there less room for weeds.
