Perennial Color for Cottage Gardens -Pollyannâ€™s- The Classic Cottage Garden sits closely to the house and contains flowers, vegetables and herbs for the at-home gardener. The biggest impediment is finding the right plants to form the base of the gardenâ€™s colorful display along with good visual form As an experienced landscaper (I also have 2 University degrees in Fine Art and I am a Master Gardener), I design gardens and research the perennials that can provide visual impact that satisfy my clients from year to year. You can do it, too. I have developed this application to provide my expertise for plant choices, whether for size, color or fragrance. Over 20 years of monitoring my designs and plant choices and my plant research has been implemented. In those many years, I became quite frustrated at nurseries when the clerks had less knowledge than me so I wanted to implement a method of having the information â€œIN MY HANDâ€ to get what I needed. This is the information that can go with anyone to find the plants for a Cottage Garden. Plants were chosen for their aesthetic qualities in a format that may answer the needs of most gardeners: Name (botanical and common) Zone (temperature requirements) Bloom time (how long it blooms) Height (inches and centimeters) Bloom size (I find this very important and rarely noted on nursery tags) Planting Space (amount of space in the garden) Soil (requirements for best growth) Sun (how much sun) Bloom duration (yes, the length of blooming is important to any garden) Habit (how the plant acts in itâ€™s own space) Use (bouquets, fragrance, border plants, middle ground or background, foliage) Recommended (plants that would stand out) Companion plants (complimentary plants for color, size or season) Pronunciation guide (how to say the name) Deadhead (how to or whether to snip off spent blooms) Cutback (techniques for caring for the plant) Propagation method (how to get the plant to reproduce) Pests (what I know about bugs) Diseases (what I know about afflictions) Ecology notes (special interest about the plant, TOXICITY) Gardenerâ€™s tip (something I think may be useful) Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This format should make it easy to take straight to any nursery (on foot or online) and ask, show or look for the correct plant(s). 20 years of shopping, researching, and growing perennials are formatted for gardeners and landscapers to ease the frustration of â€œnot knowingâ€. Explore the varieties and colors. Smell the fragrance. Get the right size. And end the drama. Are you ready to plant? Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Peace, Pollyann
