Know for their charm and casual feel, cottage gardens are at home in places where formal, geometric gardens would not be. They became popular during the arts and crafts movement in the 1800s, a rebellion in art, architecture, and even gardening against rigorous concepts of what was appropriate for the day and time.
Flowers were jumbled together in cottage gardens, which tended, but almost as to make them appear as untended and natural as possible.
Perennials were essential, as were climbing vines and wild roses that charmingly could not be contained within boundaries. If you like a little wildness in your casual garden, a cottage style might be for you. Hydrangeas would be a perfect choice for these old-fashioned gardens. Look for them in our plant nursery.
