This classic 1960s gardening text remains a go-to book for green-thumbed gardeners.
Readers are guided through techniques for creating and maintaining a cottage garden with humour and ease, perfect for both beginners and experienced gardeners.
Cottage Garden Flowers covers plants that grow easily and naturally in British soil, including easy, adaptable bulbs, perennials and shrubs, such as Astrantia, columbines, daffodils, daisies, Dianthus, foxgloves, hollyhocks, Japonica, old roses, Phlox, Primula, or Virburnum.
No longer in danger of being forgotten, these traditional flowering plants have now re-established their place at the heart of garden design.
Includes a plant name section allowing readers to identify current plants from the Latin names within the text.
