Gap planting in a cottage garden

Prune, preen and plant. The tidy beds and border service includes trimming and deadheading established plants so that they look full and flourishing. Through natural plant cycles and the effects of climate or environment, openings emerge. Customers often ask “What can I plant in the gaps?” and we are happy to help with a suggested plant list which you can buy yourself or ask us to source from local nurseries or further afield.
