Many of the old-fashioned and heirloom plants common in cottage gardens are annuals or biennials. These annual blooms often lend themselves to easy seed collection or reseeding which is perfect for an English cottage-garden design. These plants are popular in the organic cottage garden landscape because of their beautiful foliage, season-long flowers, or intense fragrance.
