Cottage garden, Uplyme

This 1775 rural cottage needed a tidy upgrade, while keeping to the rustic theme. Lawn was removed and a simple ‘potager’ created, to reference a worker’s garden of pleasure and purpose – with salvias, lavenders, rosemary and mint providing forage for the household, and dahlia and daylilies to make cut flowers . The sturdy evergreen structure of box and yew keeps it all contained. Natural crazy-paved lias and chert stone used for the path was locally sourced and styled to be in keeping with the rubble-built nature of these rustic landworker’s cottages.
