Many moons ago, I was a columnist for Garden Design Magazine. Now I’m just an enthusiastic subscriber! I love the full-length stories (some run 10-20 pages to include lots of gorgeous photography) on plants, gardens, and design ideas — all presented without ads. Highlights from the Summer issue, and a special offer for you:
Boxwood spirals, cones, and globes make this a lively garden space. To shape spirals and cones in your own garden, try Buxus ‘Green Mountain’ and B. ‘Green Tower’. For boxwood globes, try B. sempervivens ‘Suffruticoa’ and B. ‘Green Velvet’. Get more ideas for using boxwood in the Summer 2018 issue of Garden Design magazine. Photo by Jonathan Buckley.
To add sunflowers to your floral arrangements without creating a mess, use pollenless sunflowers! Here’s one we love: ‘Moulin Rouge’—an annual sunflower with gorgeous, velvety, deep red ray flowers with an ebony center and wine-colored stems. See more fun varieties of sunflowers in the Summer 2018 issue of Garden Design magazine. Photo by Rob Cardillo.
Treasure your plants long after they’re gone from the garden! Learn how to press flower blooms and foliage and get ideas for how to display them in the Summer 2018 issue of Garden Design magazine. Photo by Josh Endres.
