Cottage garden Planting Guide & Tips

Garden Type

Traditionally made up of plants of differing heights and colours (to add texture), cottage gardens were best known as gardens which belonged to small homes, however they are most popular for their low level maintenance. For the perfect plant combination for your cottage garden, you’ll need the right mix of brightly coloured and low growing plants like Croftway Pink Bergamot, scented favourites like English lavender or frangipani and salviaor nemesia for their bright decorative appeal. Add some herbs to complete your cottage garden, like Golden Oregano.
