I often use the term cottage garden when describing the type of garden a particular flower might best suit. I actually use the term so often it’s easy to forget that others – particularly those new to gardening – might not know what I mean by it.
Annuals, perennials and biennials. If you’re a long-time gardener, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. But if you’re new to the planting scene you might still be a little confused about what these terms actually mean. So, before I extol the virtues of Canterbury bells, I’ll give you a little refresher on some key gardening terms.
