I am starting a cottage garden this year and binning the mud slick we call a lawn. Why I ever bothered with grass I dont know !
Planting several collections of herbaceous perennials I have purchased and lots of annual seeds and bulbs. Hopefully will be like walking through a giant vase of flowers on the way to the veg garden,
Got Hollyhocks lupins and delphiniums, cosmos, lillies and dahlias, campanula and gypsophelia, larkspur and zinnias and loads of other stuff.
Its about 20 by 30 feet square so should be good if i dont overcrowd it.
I think its a mixture of Rachel DeThams cutting garden and the herbaceous borders on the great garden revival that gave me the inspiration.
