Now anyone can enjoy the delightful fragrance and color of an English cottage garden at home. Hardy and needing only minimal care, cottage gardens are ideal for those whose desire for beauty is tempered by a busy lifestyle. Here is everything you’ll need to start your own little oasis, from selecting flower and herb varieties to watering and feeding, coping with pests and diseases, and more, all accompanied by full-color photographs and illustrations.

The Chairman of the Cottage Garden Society is an apt choice to write this Royal Horticultural Society Wisley handbook to cottage garden flowers. Sue Phillips has long championed this attractive method of gardening so typical of the English countryside - the billowing, overcrowded, colourful medley of summer flowers redolent of old watercolours and overly popular with chocolate box manufacturers. An easy option many people think but without a little care and attention in the planning stages, an overgrown mess. This is an attractively produced, informative guide to this enduring method of gardening. From initial design to choosing the correct plants, propagation and aftercare along with a wealth of helpful hints, Sue Phillips offers a great insight into the history and ongoing pleasure of cottage gardening. Shrubs, climbers, bulbs, annuals and perennials are all looked at, the best varieties suggested and planting uses explained to give even the smallest container a cottage garden feel. As Sue says in her introduction, cottage garden plants are not only found in the country but in towns and on flat balconies too and here she demonstrates this most ably. Part of the RHS Wisley handbook series, this is a comprehensive and concise look at cottage garden flowers, fully illustrated and clearly written. Aimed at both the amateur and professional grower, this is an invaluable addition to any serious horticulturalist's bookshelf. - Lucy Watson Sue Phillips is a qualified horticulturist and well-known gardening writer. Until recently, she was President of the Cottage Garden Society. She lives in West Sussex, England, and has a cottage garden.
