Gardening Etc - The Home of Outdoor Living seeks advice from Fi

Garden designer Fi Boyle of Fi Boyle Garden Design shares her expert advice when it comes to colors in cottage garden style planting: 'Think about the color scheme and decide what you want,' she says.

'Do you want a hot border filled with oranges, yellows and reds or do you want softer colors such as blues through to purple, with hints of pinks and white?' Sticking to a specific range for your garden color scheme will add an enchanting yet cohesive feel to your plot, so give it a try.
