Maili Felton Garden Design


Stowell, Dorset

This pretty cottage in rural Dorset has been fully renovated and a cottage garden was designed as requested by the client. Privacy from the neighbouring property was a priority. A row of mop headed Magnolias, under-planted with shade tolerant shrubs and perennials, was created which will mature to give complete cover. The soft natural planting of flowering shrubs, climbing roses and herbaceous perennials includes such cottage garden staples as Foxgloves,Hostas, Astrantia, and Alchemilla mollis. The abundant planting is contained within a framework of box hedging and evergreen shrubs ensuring interest throughout the whole year.
