Cottage Garden – Spring 2018

The goal is to demonstrate how a “Cottage Garden” look can be accomplished in this area of Texas. The classic cottage garden is a riot of color using every space available. Cottage gardens were historically small and families grew some vegetables and many herbs mixed within the garden. When space runs out a cottage gardener goes vertical!
