The Cottage Garden planting theme is a lovely mixture of herbaceous perennials planted informally to create a jungle of colour. Cottage Garden borders are often associated with the traditional British wildlife, attracting lots of butterflies and bees through their characteristics of scent and colour. If you're wanting to create a garden border that will attract wildlife, smell beautifully and blow you away with colour then this is the ready made border you're looking for!
The plants you will receive may include, but are not limited to:
Anemones, Campanulas, Coreopsis, Echinops, Delphiniums, Lupins, Helleiopsis, Salvia, Delphiniums, Verbena, Veronica, Poppies, Hardy Geraniums, Peonies, Achillea, Gaillardia, Lobelia, Echinacea, Rudbeckia, Penstemon
We recommend planting the higher growing perennials at the back, then the medium sized perennials in the middle and the low growing / ground cover perennials at the front. Please note this is only a guide and you can plant these however you'd like, Cottage Garden especially is a theme where you can explore different planting positions. We recommend opting for the size above your dimensions to make sure you've got enough plants to fill your border while securing these plants at their lowest cost.
We also recommend to water your border everyday/every two days within the hot and dry months and then in as it becomes wetter outside you can water once a week.
In midsummer if your garden receives the following hours of direct sunlight then they are classed as:
Full Shade: 0-2.5hrs
Partial Shade: 3-5.5hrs
Full Sun: 6hrs+
Plants will arrive in 9cm growers pots. Herbaceous perennials die back below ground level each autumn, fresh new growth will appear in the spring. The images are for illustrative purposes only - photos were taken in the summer months.
