The Cottage Gardener's Companion is both an inspirational and practical guide to choosing and using plants to create the authentic cottage feel in your own garden - whatever its size. Compiled by the Cottage Garden Society, descriptions of the cottage garden scene and the tasks to be performed at each season are followed by a detailed compendium of traditional cottage-garden plants to choose. Trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials, bulbs, herbs, old cottage favourites and fascinating curiosities are all described, while a wealth of inspirational plant combinations and schemes are suggested for all seasons and situations.
Illustrated throughout with original engravings and superb colour photographs showing just what can be achieved, The Cottage Gardener's Companion is essential reading for everyone who would like to plant an abundant and beautiful garden.
