A stunning, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, long-blooming flower. The Coreopsis is happy being left to flourish as long as it's planted in it's optimal environment with lots of sun and good soil drainage.
The Salvia... A plant with a stunning yet delicate flower that comes in many varieties. They are beloved by bees and butterflies—plus, they’re drought-tolerant! All salvias do best in full sun (6-8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil. Many varieties (typically those with light-colored flowers) will also do well in part-shade, but flowering will be reduced.
Penstemons are such a lovely addition to any border. The bees love them, and they have a particularly long flowering time, with most continuing to flower up until the first frost. They come in many different colours and varieties.
Lupins are striking cottage-garden plants with bold, colourful flower spikes that stand out amongst the green foliage. They are easy to grow and enjoy being in an open, sunny spot.
Alpines & Herbacious Perennials
Alpines are small and highly collectable plants, producing stunning little flowers in a range of vibrant hues. As they come from mountainous regions, many are very hardy.
Plants in and around ponds add visual interest, helping to make a pond appear more naturally blended in to it's surroundings. They encourage wildlife and can help keep water clear. Adding the right plants will greatly add to your enjoyment of the pond as well as visiting wildlife!
Trees & Hedges
Trees are a great addition to any garden. They add cover and height, and provides a home for wildlife. Hedges also provide a great home for wildlife, and are perfect for adding privacy to your garden.

Create a Cottage Garden
Cottage gardens are known and loved for their charm and character, with tumbling climbers, fragrant perennials and rambling roses, and we have all you need to create a beautiful one. Cottage gardens can adapt easily to any sized garden, so whether you have a courtyard or a large outdoor space, our team are happy to help create your dream cottage garden.
Firstly when designing your cottage garden it’s important to invest in a quality rich soil to help your plants thrive. Use peat-free and organic compost for more environmentally friendly gardening. In regards to plants it is best to choose hardier low-maintenance perennials, annuals and foliage plants, such as Delphiniums, Lavender, Peonies and Honeysuckle. We have lots of stunning cottage plants to choose from, with our friendly team on hand for advice if you are unsure. When it comes to planting remember you want to promote informal crowding and think of colour schemes, for instance if you would like soft pastels or vibrant rich colours.
Finally adding a curved pathway will entice and welcome people through your cheerful cottage garden. Use stepping stones, gravel or paving slabs.
