Reminiscent of quintessential English countryside gardens, the romantic cottage garden look is as beautiful as it is easy to achieve. While many specific garden looks depend on order and organisation, this is a rich tapestry of colours, scents and flowers in abundance which focuses more on creating something you love, rather than sticking to predefined rules about how the space should look.

Cottage gardens are filled with an array of different aspects - flowers that bloom at different times throughout the year, a herb patch to aid cooking, as well as overgrown borders that would, in other circumstances look messy. But that’s part of the joy of a space in this style - it’s aesthetically pleasing but takes little effort to establish or maintain. While the first rule of the cottage garden club is that there are no rules, this guide will give you a few pointers on getting the look you’ve always dreamed of.
