I love love cottage garden plants and grasses, but having said that I don't stick to any one sort of plant, if I like it I plant it! I'm two years into creating a garden from a wilderness in my Somerset home. We live close to the sea so winds can be a problem but I benefit from a mild winter. This year I'm creating a bed of ornamental grasses in my back garden and a wildflower/ meadow garden in my front (though at the moment I keep having to explain to people I'm not being lazy and just not cutting the grass!
I like to grow plants from seeds for the garden and more unusual plants for the conservatory
Happy to swap seeds, cuttings and plants
