What’s So Great About: Cottage Gardens
This time of year the cottage garden at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum looks its best. It’s freewheeling, not formal; generous, not stingy. Its abundance may be what you notice rst but it is a distinct style that uses informal design, traditional materials, dense plantings, and a mixture of ornamental and edible plants. Tour the cottage garden and nd ideas for what you can do at your own home.
