Can the British cottage garden style be adapted with American native plants? Absolutely! To find out how, check out this month's (July/August 2012) issue of the The American Gardener Magazine, featuring a full-length article that I wrote addressing this very topic. "Cottage Garden, American Style," explains the design principles behind creating cottage gardens and includes lists of native plants best adapted to give it that unique look. As a web special, The American Horticultural Society included my list of native cottage garden plants organized by regions of the country.
