February 26 2007 English Garden Newsletter


Welcome to the late February English Garden Newsletter

Here are some tips to help you add magic and character to your English Garden or just give you ideas on how you could modify parts of your garden to an English Garden theme.

Herbs
Herbs can play a large part in an English Garden. They have been used for centuries and look very pretty as well as often having a delightful scent. You can plant them in pots and containers or amongst your cottage garden perennials

Climbers
Using climbers is a good way to get more vertical interest in your garden and what can look more lovely than honeysuckle or your favourite climber draped over a pergola, tree or trellis. It will give you more colour in your garden. You can also use your supports for 2 or 3 different types of climbers choose ones that flower at different times of the year.

Containers
There are so many lovely and unusual containers you can choose from. Annuals look great in containers. They need to be put somewhere you can tend and water them easily. They add colour and scent around entrances, patios, seats or anywhere you think needs an extra splash of colour.

Unplanted areas.
An English cottage garden is full of plants. Hard landscaping or the unplanted areas for example paths, patios, graveled seating areas and containers, serve the purpose of giving you access and the ability to look and smell the plants. You need to plan these areas first and build your plants around them.

Try Recycling
The romantic idea of an English Garden has a garden full of roses, hollyhocks, pinks and lavender. By adding things you find - such as chimney pots, sinks, old buckets or pots, old wheelbarrows or wellies you create features that add to the character of your garden as well as becoming a good recycler! Often you can find items at car boot sales, garage sales etc.

Here's the latest article from the English Garden site at BellaOnline.com.
