Plant of the Month - The Cottage Garden
Cottage gardens are truly wonderful when in flower. From Lupins and Delphiniums to Hollyhocks and Digitalis, their informal, homely blooms are full of grace and charm. English in origin, cottage gardens go back centuries and were mainly fruit and vegetable gardens with flowers planted in-between. Re-stylized in the late 1800's cottage gardens now mainly feature traditional flowers, roses, ornamental grasses and herbs. Lakeside has a host of cottage garden plants starting from £5.99 each.
