The Modern Cottage Garden: A Fresh Approach to a Classic Style


The Modern Cottage Garden: A Fresh Approach to a Classic Style Author: Format: Hardback First Published: Published By: Timber Press Pages: 228 Language: English ISBN: 9781604699081 Category:

In The Modern Cottage Garden, Greg Loades presents a new style of planting: a fusion between the New Perennial style championed by hot designers like Piet Oudolf, and the classic cottage style. This design-forward guide teaches gardeners how to blend the best aspects of both–big, colorful blooms and a striking mix of grasses and native plants–into one space that is colorful, low maintenance, and has a long season of interest. Equal parts inspirational and practical, The Modern Cottage Garden features real gardens as examples and details exactly how gardeners can implement the style at home. Plant suggestions highlight reliable and attractive varieties that can grow in a range of climates, and fresh planting ideas for containers and small spaces show that the style shines in every type of space.
