Today I want to share a bit about perennials that work well in a cottage garden. I think a cottage garden is one that is more free form with less structure. Where flowers intermingle with one another! This style of garden is perfect for perennials that self sow or spread from year to year.
When we purchased our home about 15 years ago, I was anxious to create some cottage garden flower beds and plant perennials. I was fortunate to have a very good friend who shared a lot of her plants with me. Her mother and some of my neighbors also shared from their gardens – so many of what is now growing in my flower beds were free! That’s the beauty of a perennial – they are springtime’s gift that keeps on giving!
