cottage type garden in Zone 9?

Is it possible to have a cottage type garden in Zone 9?

Submitted by deshav

Hi, Well a cottage style garden can be created with any type of plants. Just remember that in your zone you might not be able to duplicate a typical northern style cottage garden, but if the plants you choose are arranged in a loose, informal manner you can get the same look. I suggest you go to our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an Advanced Search on your needs and you will get a planting list that might help.
