Linda's motto has always been that she is a woman of excess! More is not enough!!
This explains her cottage style of gardening. Pack it, and pack it full! The difference between Linda and everyone else is that while you are planting one of a plant, she is planting seven of the same plant, making her garden better, fatter, fuller.
Linda's English cottage garden features 300 David Austin English roses as well as many perennials and shrubs.
Her garden was featured in Better Homes and Gardens "Perennials" magazine April 2001 issue. Her back porch was featured in the June 2001 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
