Pick plants which are doers: robust and tough. In a cottage garden there is plenty of competition for space so that you need the plants you put in to hold their own. Expect there to be down times in the garden. This form of garden is going to look amazing in summer but may have a quiet season in winter. Plant winter and spring bulbs to help give color through that down time.
If you’re planting a little food garden on a patio, balcony, or are developing a garden for your very first time in your lawn, it is very important to make a habitat that invites pollinators. A patio is comparable to a deck into a degree. To supply a pure signature, you are able to build a fireplace directly in the center of the deck.
