English cottage garden designs are more of an organised plan than a design. The cottager used what was available and grew what was needed and not much more.
They should above all be practical, easy to maintain and look lived in. Most cottage gardens have been designed as the cottager went along but a little planning beforehand can go a long way!
We'll look at the principles, such as knowing your garden and what you want from it, and how to achieve the relaxed and floriferous style that is so representative of cottage gardens.
