The cottage garden is a distinct style of garden that uses an informal design, traditional materials, dense plantings, and a mixture of ornamental and edible plants. Plants tend to be planted in groups rather than rows. The denser the plants, the less the weeding. Self seeding is actively encouraged.

English in origin, the cottage garden depends on grace and charm rather than grandeur and formal structure.

At Gotherington Nurseries we have a fantastic selection of cottage garden plants and we are here to help you find the right cottage garden plants for your garden.
