Cottage gardens conjure up small gardens full to the brim of cottage garden plants, so much so that the plants dominate the garden and why not. Mix every colour and shape and pack them all into a small space to create a sense of fun.
A cottage garden designer will offer somewhere for you to potter about in and loose yourself for a while. All those little nooks and crannies to hide gardening objects, like those that you see in the small Chelsea Flower Show gardens. Objects like old bikes, wheelbarrows, pots, even boots can add fun and personalise your garden.
Cottage gardens are different from the other styles because they tend to be based more on plants and less on structure. The garden becomes the place to place your finds - the plant that you bought whilst on holiday, the old watering can that your granny used to use. Do not be afraid to move the cottage plants around and change things - have fun and experiment.
So why not see just how much you can pack into a small space and get some inspiration by calling Barry for some ideas on creating a cottage garden design of your very own.
