Cottage Garden

Cottage Garden

The Cottage Garden recalls the use of space and plants surrounding country homes which provided herbs, vegetables, fruit and flowers for daily use. A large variety of plants were grown on nearly every inch of soil with space left between gardens for a path leading to the front door.
