Cottage Garden Planting


The Potted Cottage garden is situated on a part-shade, North facing concrete dais, in front a single storey domicile. The area is divided by a white louvred screen that conceals 2 large gas cannisters. The garden itself is of necessity a containerised one, partitioned east/west as one third and two thirds respectively.

The colour scheme is intentionally eye-catching with a majority of hot colours in a pinks/purple palette mixed with citrus. It is primarily a perennial cottage garden, with a few shrubs for structure and seasonal bulbs and annuals.
