Cottage Gardens (New England)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 20 Ways to Get the Cottage Garden Look
18. Vary heights - here they range from gourds and their vines on the ground up to hollyhocks that are seven feet tall.
Becky Harris added this to Unexpected Edible Gardens
This is one of my favorite gardens. It's in funky Branford, Connecticut. Hollyhocks stand tall while vines of gourds twine beneath them on the ground. It's such an exuberant mix, where every rule has been thrown out the window.
Amy Renea added this to Make the Most of a Small Garden
Another classic cottage plant is the charming hollyhock. Situate this plant in the back of a small border to add height to your garden. When you grow hollyhocks from seed, expect to see your first blooms in the second year.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Vegetables and Flowers Mix in Beautiful Edible Gardens
A space-saving, high-density producer. Watermelon is tucked below the towering hollyhocks to squeeze the most out of the space in this free-spirited garden.
9. Put the word out. As you begin to know what you want and need, let people know. What you're longing for — a row of peonies or a bed of ferns — might be the very thing a friend, or a friend of a friend is looking to part with.
