The cottage garden

The cottage garden
Cottage gardens are usually very fragrant and stuffed with long established traditional summer favourites such as lavender, wisteria, paeonies and roses. Herbaceous plants are planted thickly to cover bare earth and minimise weeding.
We can all picture a typical English country village in July but there are plenty of newer and perhaps more modern plants which will do just as good a job and traditions are changing.
You will find our list of suggestions or recommendations contains some of each, selected by demand from our customers. 
If in doubt about how many plants are needed for a particular sized border, a fence or a shady area, then email us photographs of your garden and we will try to help.
