That last comment was supposed to link through to an article I've written to help you create you own cottage garden but i think I did it wrong.
My beef with Chelsea is that all the gardens are staged. Half the plants that are seen in the borders would never all be in bloom at the same time normally. But I guess the show is a stage for the garden designers. I agree it would be nice to see some more http://blog.theenduringgardener.com/cottage-gardens/ rather than mainly modern spaces.
Thanks for the tip Terri.
Maybe consider a pair of wisteria - although the lose their leaves in winter they bare plant is still attractive and can be woven around the arches.
