|Hi Lee Anne, such a nice job on this topic. I have to admit I do not have a cottage garden but your article makes me feel abit better about the chaos I have going on in some of my gardens.

|Hi Lee Anne! I love your gardens! Thanks for sharing with us! I would love for mine to look that good. Very pretty!|

|Your garden is truly an inspiration. I have many of the same plants but mine compete with a lot of weeds. It's pretty good tho, considering that I started with dried up pasture and a few really tough survivors.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

|Thanks for a good article with pictures and plant names.|
I shall compare my own to yours, and get ideas for when I have nothing in bloom.
Thanks for taking the time to share your garden.

|If you put in enough plants they crowd out the weeds?|
Jul 20, 2011 6:55 PM CST
|I get a few weeds...not a lot though. I compost mid-summer. Early enough to bury any weed seeds, and not too late that it covers annual seeds. |
I really believe that the more weeds you pull before they go to seed, the fewer weeds you get the following year until eventually weeds aren't even an issue...just the occasional one that blows in or the birds leave behind.

|Love your cottage garden. I have one in Las Vegas but have planted "planned shade". |
Your hardy hibiscus is so controlled. Mine are giants. Do you start pinching back as soon as they break ground. I would love your input.
The photo is my Moy Grande. It is at least 6 feet tall. I am going to have to move everything in the bed because what is behind the hibiscus you cannot see, unless you are in the greenbelt.
I appreciate your knowledge. Sharon.
If it is not going to affect you five years from now, do not let it get you down.

|No, I don't dare pinch the hardy hibiscus back at all. They barely have time to bloom up here as it is. |
Yours are amazing!!
