Quintessential English Gardens

Adele Shotton-Pugh | Posted

Quintessential English gardens fill to the brim with beautiful flowers and heady aromas have a classical style harking back to the time when gardens were formal for the wealthy, with borders laid out with precision, neatly manicured lawns and borders overflowing, while country cottages used the same abundance of flowers but with a less formal and more natural planting schemes.

The plants that we have come to affectionately regards as quintessentially English include delphiniums, lupins, cornflowers, sweet peas, love-in-a-mist, foxgloves and stocks. These flowers typically have hues of pretty pinks and blues making them an ideal colour choice for bedrooms and living rooms. To get the look:
