Ok I’ve found this site and it seems great so here goes my first blog.
I’ve recently embarked on a journey to transform the garden of my house into a spectacular cottage garden. I’ve been reading up on cottage garden’s and googling other people’s on the net to try and get an idea of what I want to achieve. So about a month ago I set to work transforming what was basically just a yard with lawn and a few mature plants into my ideal cottage garden. I found old garden beds once I managed to get the lawn mower through the long grass so I’ve weeded those (and discovered a large number of well established azaleas hiding amongst the weeds). I’m now in the process of planting out a variety of plants (preferably ones that will drop their seeds and send up new plants) including several varieties of poppy, marigolds, foxglove, pansies, cornflowers (blue), daisies, snowflakes, hydrangeas, salvia, jasmine, peruvian lily, violas and many more to come. When my new neighbor found out that I was getting the houses garden in order she was so delighted that she offered for me to come over and look at her garden. She told me to feel free to take cutting off any plants I liked because she had grown so tired of the ‘dump’ next door. So I now have a few cuttings resting in pots out the back waiting for the day I can plant them in the garden actual. It’s so exciting watching my garden come to life and now I can watch other people’s gardens blossom as well thanks to this site. :)
