Your cottage-style front garden needn’t be restricted to behind the fence line. Along the outside of this front fence, climbing ‘Mary Rose’ provides height and fragrance, while golden creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’) and May Night salvia (Salvia nemorosa ‘May Night’) form the lower tier. Keep to two or three colours or varieties of plants to really make an impact.

Dazzle passers-by with colour With plantings this pretty, no one will notice the fence needs a paint. In fact, it will probably just add some rustic charm. Roses are just the thing for more traditional houses, while sculptural succulents and striking grasses may be better choices for ultra-contemporary home designs.

STEP 6: Add your fragranceOnce your wax reaches the optimum melting temperature, add your chosen fragrance oil. “I work with between 11 and 12 per cent because I’ve found that in working with soy wax, that amount gives me the maximum scent throw,” says Elsworth. BONUS TIP: Steer clear of essential oils, because too much of a good thing can cause your candle to combust.
