Spring Cottage Garden

No one can deny the beautiful exuberance of a spring cottage garden, with its bright and cheery colours heralding the end of an often grey and cold winter spell. If you can’t wait until the beautiful long flowering times of a summer garden, and need the early and instant gratification in spring, nothing is more beautiful than a traditional style Cottage Garden, made from a selection of garden worthy plants. Choose annuals from seeds to sow in spring, brightly coloured poppies and wildflowers or delicate and fragrant sweet peas, or make a selection of old world favourite perennials, for a pastel coloured and harmoniums spring garden. Both are listed below, you choose what suits your style!
