The Collected Cottage feat. Kathryn Crisp Greeley

Season 5 | Episode 33
25m | Oct 31, 2023

Kathryn Greeley is a collector, gardener, entertainer, and designer. Kathryn lives in western North Carolina in a lovely home called Chestnut Cottage. This cottage and its grounds are filled with many of her favorite things. 

The gardens outside the cottage are equally impressive. Kathryn’s great affection for cottage style gardens was inspired by her many visits to England, Scotland, and Ireland. Her cozy and informal gardens fill her home with flowers from spring through fall – starting with over 2,600 daffodils and tulips followed by peonies, foxgloves, lupines, forget-me-nots, grape hyacinths and then lilacs, scented roses, delphiniums, sweet peas and of course hollyhocks to mention a few. 


We’ve brought Kathryn on today to discuss planning a year-round garden.
