'Cottage garden plants': Flowers to sow in your garden now 'delicious'

Date:


Award-winning gardener Pollyanna Wilkinson runs a Garden Design Studio near Hampton Court in Surrey. What is she planting in her garden this year?

Pollyanna discussed her favourite flowers with Express.co.uk.

The expert likes the English cottage feel in her own home.

She told Express.co.uk: “I have so many favourites and it changes with the seasons and the style of the garden I’m designing.

“But, in my own garden, my favourites are the blowsy, cottage garden plants.

“Blush toned roses, fragrant Nepeta, Alchemilla covered in dewdrops. Delicious.”

Pollyanna also detailed “the only method that works” to kill slugs. 

She said: “Nematodes seems to be the only (nonchemical) thing that works for slugs, and even then, very wet summers such as last year can prove a battle.”

Nematodes are tiny little creatures that kill slugs and lay eggs in their bodies.

They release bacteria to kill the slugs before laying their eggs, their young then feasting on the body of the slug.
