Experience the Cosy Comfort of English Cottage Gardens
The English Cottage Garden is a beautiful, practical style of garden that often features herbs and vegetables, mixed with an abundance of colourful flowers planted and growing in every direction.
This style of garden is best suited to those with plenty of time to maintain and make it thrive with frequent planting, pruning, watering and fertilising. Imagine hordes of bright, colourful flowers set against lush green foliage, sprawled across terracotta garden pots and garden beds, climbing the walls, and spilling out on to a brick pathway running through the centre. Throughout the seasons, the English Cottage Garden changes its dynamics and continues to surprise and delight. Different plants bloom at different times of the year, always keeping you intrigued and wondering what will come next.
This type of garden is great for cutting flowers for vases, and will mean you never have an empty vase in the house. This is not a low maintenance garden, however it is charming and always rewarding. Typically, an English Cottage Garden will feature lots of green, with herbs, shrubs and plants covering every available space. Garden beds will be brimming with colourful flowers and plants, with seasonal bulbs and annuals producing flowers and bloom all year round.
Traditionally vegetables and herbs are grown to provide practical use in the kitchen. A brick pathway can lead to a particular area in the garden or create a feature section, and roses and climbers can be wound around lattice fences and garden arches to create the effect of flowers blooming at every level.
Consider completing the English Cottage Garden by incorporating a quaint outdoor table setting, perfect for sitting and drinking tea. This style of garden can work for any property size, but it is much more effective with small or medium gardens which can be crammed with as many flowers and plants as possible. Across bigger spaces, arrange garden beds into particular colour groups and break it up with lush green grass.
Amazing canopy trees such as liquidambars and jacarandas will also add some green, as well as small to medium trees like crab apples and crepe myrtles. A cluster of terracotta pots or wooden garden boxes can be used as a feature, containing flower combinations or vegetable patches.
At Diaco’s, we can help keep your vegetable patches nourished and healthy with garden supply products such as quality mulch and good premium blended soil.
