victorian garden/cottage garden
Two years ago i had one side of my garden as a cottage garden with lawn and family area, the other side was my veg garden. My wife suggested as veg where so cheap perhaps it could all be a cottage garden. I duly divided all my perenials during autumn 2011 creating a new cottage garden with the rest and added some new plants for contrast plus a small lawn area to sit and enjoy. Sad i know but i miss my veg. I was watching a gardening program recently only to discover that the victorian cottage garden grew veg and flowers intermixed, i am trying this, this year so have planted cabbage, onions, sweetcorn and lettuce in amoung my perenials in my borders.
Can anyone tell me if they have tried this and what results they had and did they experience any problems i shouls be aware of or any tips as to the best varieties of veg for this type of gardening. Many thanks
