10 Ways to Create an Aged Cottage Garden
What is the great irony of cottage gardens? Unlike many things, the older they look, the better.
Make a Lily Pond
Whether you install a pond, reflecting pool, or fountain, the addition of water plants fools the eye into believing the feature has been there long enough to attract plant life, just as it would in the wild.
Water lillies, water grasses, irises, and lotus plants are some of the hundreds of options available -- visit your local garden center, or shop online at lilyblooms.com.
Choose water plants that come in slit plastic growing baskets: These containers float, and the soil holds all the necessary nutrients. Simply place the containers in the water and watch as the plants spread over the the coming months.
