The cottage style garden is favoured by people with time to garden, who are a romantic at heart, or by artists and photographers as a ready source of subject matter who enjoy a densely planted informal mixed garden filled interesting shapes, textures, fragrances and colour from the wide variety of flowers, vegetables, herbs, and fruit that grows in abundance.

The cottage style garden often includes some of the following structural features:

A birdbath
Wishing well or other water feature
A trellis or archway
Picket fences
Plants in terracotta pots or hanging baskets
Garden seating
Brick or cobblestone walkways

If this is the style of garden you envision, then you have a wide variety of flowering and fragrant foliage plants from which to choose.

Some of the more commonly grown ones are:

Roses – a favourite amongst cottage gardeners

Lavender – Along walkways, in containers or set amongst other plants.

Old-Fashioned Flowers – Stock, Delphiniums, Violets, Cosmos, Pansies, Love-in-the-mist, Poppies, Foxgloves and more





Bulbs – Daffodils, Tulips, Jonquils, Gladioli.
