Photographs by Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times Kathy Jentz, editor of Washington Gardner magazine, does some weeding around her Silver Spring cottage garden. Ms. Jentz says in the informal cottage garden, flowers can bleed over into other beds and even into pathways. The goal, she says, is to have something in bloom all year round.

This hanging pot of pansies, impatiens, bogonias and sweetpea is a different way of displaying some traditional flowers that also helps contain some that would otherwise spread, such as the lamium vine hanging out of it, according to Kathy Jentz, editor of Washington Gardner magazine. Jentz took an old window frame from a house that was going to be demolished and paired it with a galvanized metal box in order to create the decorative piece that hangs in her Silver Spring, Md., garden on Monday, June 20, 2011.

According to Jentz, editor of Washington Gardner magazine, a cottage garden is perhaps the most informal of all gardens. Flowers can bleed over into other beds and even into pathways, and it's ok. The goal, she says, is to have something in bloom all year round. Lavendar is another old-fashioned plant that grandma might have had in her own garden. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
