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.
A view of bare soil makes a garden look unestablished. To avoid the immature look, mass annuals -- plenty of them -- close together.

If your using perennials, however, give them more room so they don't have to compete for space and nutrients.
