The essence of the cottage garden is informality, a comfortable retreat from the cares of modern life: this old-fashioned warmth accounts for its increasing popularity. Bring cozy charm to your own outdoor space with this manual of planting schemes, flowers, flowering shrubs, and trees. Recreate the authentic feel of the cottage garden with fencing, fountains, and paving, and see which plants traditionally bloomed in these gardens...and which ones have become modern alternatives. The integration of fruit, as well as vegetables and herbs, has always set cottage gardens apart from others. Find out how to plant and care for the trees, as well as how to pick and store their bounty. The directory features such beauties as the lacy Shasta daisy, hardy purple sea lavender, bright vermilion Oriental poppies, and the sweet-scented flag iris.
