What’s better than gorgeous plants to fill your garden? Free plants!
And self-seeders produce new plants for us every single year. If you want a fuss free garden, you can leave the places to their own devices as they require little intervention. If you leave them to bloom and set seed, these prolific varieties will fill every potential patch in the garden, to fulfil that desirable cottage garden style.
Here are my top 10 self-seeding plants:
Leaving self-seeding plants to their own devices may mean they pop up in unwanted places, but it’s easy to transplant them to exactly where you want them. By digging them up with a trowel, taking care not to disturb the roots, simply replant them in prepared soil at the same depth as the spot they were taken from and water them in well.
This selection will guarantee you a garden full of beautiful blooms year after year with their self-seeding propagation, whilst you can appreciate your low maintenance cottage garden.
