Classic cottage garden flowers

Delphiniums

It’s been a real treat for us to spend time with friends visiting some of our favourite English gardens, including Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate Court, Rousham House, Powis Castle and Wollerton Old Hall. I’ll be sorting through pictures for a few more days yet, but wanted to share a glimpse of some classic cottage garden plants that seemed to be enjoying the sunshine: roses, delphiniums, clematis, verbascums and foxgloves.

I hope you’ll have chance to visit the gardens you love most this summer – and that if it’s winter in your part of the world, you’ll find some of your favourite cottage garden flowers here.
