Growing a cottage garden, one plant at a time...

Hello! My name is Laura Boissonnault. I live in Southern New Jersey. My love of gardening began as a child, where my parents raised me in a home that cultivated a true appreciation for beauty inside and out. My husband Marc and I have been fortunate to share many travel adventures together. Topping the list of favorite places we have traveled include England, Paris, Scotland, and Italy, where my garden love has flourished. It has been my passion to take a slice of that beauty and recreate it into a small garden space in our own back yard. My husband graduated from Drexel University as an architect major, and his feedback and keen eye has truly been beneficial to me in my design ideas. I’m a proud Mom of two little boys, and I hope to pass this love of the garden along to them. I also very much enjoy decorating the interior of our home, restoring and maintaining the beauty of our 1920 built Colonial. I collect salt glazed pottery, and love historic elements and antique pieces. Please join me on my journey of creating a cottage style retreat.
