Cottage Gardens

Charming and informal, cottage gardens are for the romantic at heart.

Cottage gardens are enchanting and rustic. Densely planted garden beds burst with flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruit trees. Stone fruit, citrus, berries, poppies, lavender hedges, rosemary and all types of vegetables are at home in a cottage setting.

Pair cottage edibles with a rose arbour, a traditional bench seat or vintage timber furniture, wooden raised garden beds, timber garden stakes and obelisks. Picket or brush fencing will complete this look.

This style of gardening is well loved by gardeners who can’t resist the colour and scent of flowers or the taste of a homegrown harvest. They are at their happiest amidst beautiful ordered chaos. A cottage or potager garden will set off a traditional villa or bungalow or barn-style building.
