A celebration of colours & textures
Cottage garden plants include a charming hodgepodge of flowers and herbs in a wide array of colours and textures. When planning your cottage garden, don’t strive too hard to achieve that ‘perfectly planned’ look.
Neatly planted rows of flowers will only make your garden look stiff and formal, which instantly detracts from the charm of the garden. A cottage garden should have a casual, relaxed look about it with flowers of different colours and textures intermingling joyfully with one another.
While there are no rules about what plants you can or cannot use in your cottage garden, here are a few cottage plants that can add a burst of colour and excitement to your garden:
When creating your cottage garden, throw out all traditional diktats about arranging cottage garden plants. Instead, add to the excitement by interspersing swathes of achillea, delphinium and lady’s mantle with hollyhocks and other towering plants and tie it all in with a few climbing roses around the entrance doorway.
If there are any bare gaps in between, fill them up with bunches of poppies, cornflowers and snapdragons. Now sit back and enjoy your delightful cottage garden.
