In the days of old England, peasants owned small homes with small gardens and acted as workers in the small villages. These gardens, despite their small size, had to be able to supply the entire family with all of their gardening needs. The kitchen garden would consist of fruits, herbs and vegetables, and sometimes even flowers would be grown. The most popular flowers that you will find in this style of country garden landscaping includes hollyhocks, herbs, daisies and delphiniums. One of the most popular herbs that you will find in an English country garden landscaping project is mint. English cottage gardens and country gardens exhibit a style that has evolved through time based on necessity, and now these garden styles are rich with mystical charm, rich color and beautiful scents.
