About Top 10 Cottage Garden Classic Plants
Nothing is more romantic than a traditional cottage garden. Dripping with flowers and heady with scent, these gardens are based on an idyllic view of countryside life and with a cottage garden you can bring a breath of the country to any space. A cottage garden is an informal planting where flowers take center stage. Imagine masses of tecoma, pentas, Jasminum sambac and hollyhock mingling together and spilling out of garden beds. Cottage gardens invite wandering and evoke whimsy.
Cottage gardens are just meant for arches, arbors and pergolas. They don't have to be expensive and can make a huge difference to the garden. Use them to increase the number of scented climbers you can grow.
Do you know one of the best things about cottage gardens? There's always room to squeeze more plants in - use hanging baskets and window boxes, not just for summer but to bring color for the rest of the year too.
