Description

There is perhaps no style of garden more evocative than the cottage garden - imbued with a sense of romance, idealised by writers and painters, so alluring to garden makers all over the world, it has been fashionable for nearly two centuries. However, today it is often thought of as outdated, old fashioned and past its sell-by date. This need not be the case. With the hustle and bustle of today's frantic lifestyle, the cottage garden has never been more appropriate. It is the distillation of the essence of what a garden should be - it is a place of beauty, repose, tranquillity and the rest.

The book is both a repository of verdant pastoral images and a guide on how to create a cosmic cottage garden, with descriptions, plant lists and planting schemes. Different 'types' are identified and outlined. A most invaluable book for the garden designer and the gardener.
