"Creating and Planting a Cottage Garden"



Andrew Oldham

Life on Pig Row

The Oldham family (Andrew, Carol and D) have created an inspiring kitchen garden which provides a wealth

of rich flavours for the kitchen and larder.  

Their make do and mend attitude was born out of three years recreating a Dig for Victory garden on their 1/4 acre plot. At Pig Row they have a cottage garden that they have built over ten years but in this talk Andrew takes us through the history of the cottage garden, companion planting and how the cottage garden has evolved from a herb garden to a garden we associate with chocolate box cottages.


They have featured in Kitchen Garden, Sainsbury's and Landscape magazines, The Guardian, Northern Soul, and The Cottage Gardener.
