Every plant comes with its own instructions.

Cottage Garden Perennials in Your Design

One of the easiest to grow in principle. The style is unpretentious, fluid and relaxed, and always works well with our white and pink perennial collections.

Did You Know?

Although we naturally see cottage gardens through rose-tinted spectacles, their abundance and higgledy-piggledy form and colour stemmed from necessity, as well as romance (which is at least a bit necessary). The Black Death in the Medieval era is said to have led the way; the hardships of that time drove the local production of essential items, and people's gardens had to earn their keep every way that they could, fitting a lot into a small space by packing in medicinal herbs and cutting flowers between the animal pens and fruit trees. Later, the vision was sustained by Victorians who moved the farm animals out of sight and amplified the flowers into that famously informal, loose style of planting that never goes out of fashion.
