A Cottage Garden Planner

A Guide for would-be Cottage Gardeners

Another taster of one of our exclusive Cottage Garden Society products.  This is the revised and expanded edition of our extremely popular little planner.  Small enough and cheap enough to put in your pocket and take with you out into the garden to consult for planting ideas, for information on what plant thrives where, what pests you might encounter in your garden and a whole host of other topics.
