Does anyone know much about 1920's gardens?
I know this is the cottage garden forum, but I also know some of you like a more traditional layout, with cottage flowers and shrubs, etc.
As some of you know, I've been working on my new kitchen garden and the weeds have been getting the upper hand, so to speak. This was the former horse pasture, so the weeds are loving this soil. The other night, I realized this garden looks more like a ruin, than a new garden. LOL The weeds are 3' tall (and I've pulled them up three times this summer) and as I weed, I keep finding my blueberry bushes, strawberries, roses, etc. They're all doing very well and look great, they're just hidden by weeds.
Anyway, it made me think about historic gardens and I went over to the Garden Restoration forum...and found a 1920's garden that looks a lot like my kitchen garden. It's bordered by shrubs all the way around and has an arbor/pergola on one side and a round bed with a sundial (I have a birdbath) on the other side.
Does anyone have a 1920's style garden? I didn't even know there was one. I'll try to post the picture I found on the forum and a picture of my kitchen garden (weeds and all) when I get a chance tomorrow. Off to check on my mom right now.
If anyone has pictures or ideas, please let me know. Thanks :)
