The English Cottage Garden

by Jane Taylor, Andrew Lawson (Photographer)

An intricate mix of beauty, utility, wildness, and domestication: that's the quintessential British garden. From its medieval beginnings as a yard for livestock and vegetables, the cottage garden became a retreat for the gentry of the 17th century, and then took on a new dimension of sophistication—though it never relinquished its original functional roots.
