There's something undeniably romantic about cottage gardens, harking back to a time when life was simpler, the pace slower and nature was an integral part of everyday life.

It was a time when householders gardened to eat as well as for pleasure, and developed an informal approach to growing edible plants alongside the purely decorative. Nowadays, this tradition gives a spontaneous feel to planting, and modern cottage gardens are a melange of productive and ornamental plants, unrestricted by rules of colour-theming. If a plant is healthy and happy, albeit self-seeded rather than carefully positioned, it is welcomed as a free spirit, and left well alone.
