Description

This sumptuous book starts with a history of the cottage garden.

A chapter on planning and design introduces the main styles and the familiar features of the cottage garden are then covered in turn - from hedges and fences, to paths, arches, furniture and the creative reuse of materials. The following two chapters focus on growing flowers and shrubs and fruit and vegetables.

Step-by-step sequences include how to protect young plants, plan a four-year crop rotation, and prune fruit trees.

A chapter on livestock and wildlife shows how to care for chickens and other animals, and how to attract wildlife from birds and bees to hedgehogs and bats.

A comprehensive directory then breaks down the wide variety of plants that give the cottage garden its appeal.
