Cottage Garden ideas- help please
Ok bit of a big question I know... I moved into my new house/garden middle of last summer. We had to do a lot of clearance and I was left with totally empty beds. I want to create a cottage garden feel and planted some foxgloves/lupins/lavenders. I also planted a few small evergreen shrubs and a couple of grasses. I planted quite a few tulip bulbs in the autumn too.
However what I am wanting help on is ideas on how to fill up my beds with lower growing plants. I LOVE colour so would like it full of colour for the summer but also need to think about how it is going to look for winter- as at the moment its just ugly bare earth with a few very sad looking foxglove crowns and grasses! Any ideas would be very welcome - many thanks x
