Cottage Garden Ready-made Border


The Cottage Garden theme features a delightful blend of herbaceous perennials planted informally, creating a vibrant burst of colours. These borders are known for attracting British wildlife like butterflies and bees due to their scents and hues. If you aim to establish a border that appeals to wildlife, emanates a beautiful fragrance, and dazzles with colours, our ready-made collection is your ideal choice. 

The plant selection may include but is not limited to: Anemones, Campanulas, Coreopsis, Echinops, Delphiniums, Lupins, Helleiopsis, Salvia, Delphiniums, Verbena, Veronica, Poppies, Hardy Geraniums, Peonies, Achillea, Gaillardia, Lobelia, Echinacea, Rudbeckia, Penstemon, and more. 

For planting, we suggest arranging taller perennials at the back, medium-sized ones in the middle, and low-growing or ground cover perennials at the front. This is a flexible guide, and you can explore different positions, as the Cottage Garden theme encourages creativity. Each plant will arrive with its own individual label that shows an image of the plant in bloom, a short description on the plant and the eventual height and spread. Opting for a size above your dimensions ensures you have enough plants to fill your border while securing them at the lowest cost.

After planting, we recommend watering your border every day or every two days during hot and dry months. As the weather becomes wetter, reduce watering to once a week. 

In midsummer, assess your garden's sunlight: 

  • Full Shade: 0-2.5 hours of direct sunlight
  • Partial Shade: 3-5.5 hours of direct sunlight
  • Full Sun: 6 hours or more of direct sunlight

Plants will arrive in 9cm growers pots. Herbaceous perennials die back in autumn, and new growth appears in spring. Please note that the images are for illustrative purposes only, captured during the summer months.
