March 22 2007 English Garden Newsletter


Welcome to the English Garden newsletter

March is a time when we are starting to sow seeds and plan our flowering schemes. Consider using the more old fashioned flowers - these may have a shorter flowering season than the modern varieties but this means you get more flowers and more changes in your garden.

You can grow lots of different types of flowers and this means your garden is always awash with different patterns and colours of blooms. An English garden is full of flowers with no patches of earth visible!

Scent is important in an English Garden and old fashioned varieties have much more scent than more modern varieties. Just think of old fashioned roses, pinks, nicotiana, sweet peas and violets.

The primrose - primula vulgaris, first mentioned in 1597 in John Gerald’s Herball. Is one of those lovely flowers that grace our gardens in spring – find out more here

Then prepare for summer – are you growing the right plants to create your own English garden potpourri ? For hundreds of years traditional flowers have been used in the making of potpourri.
Check out which flowers to grow and a recipe for making this delightful creation.

Mint is a flavour that we all know - the symbol of hospitality – much used by the Greeks and Romans and now there are over 600 varieties. You can underplant your roses with mints which helps to deter aphids.

Enjoy your garden!

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