Cottage Garden - where to start?
My partner and I have bought a lovely listed cottage in the Forest of Dean area, the main selling point being half an acre of flat garden to the side of the cottage, over-looking undulating hills and ancient oak trees. It really is beautiful, and we are very lucky, but I feel like it needs a beautiful garden to do justice to the scenery and character of the house.
It's so big, so flat and so empty I totally over whelmed ! I have done bits of gardening in the past, but nothing of this scale. Where do I start? We both work full time so are mainly limited to weekends now that the evenings draw in so early, but I do have two weeks off work coming up set aside to get stuck in to home improvements.
Any ideas, inspirations or warnings are very welcome!?
thanks in advance,
Josie and Jim
