Current issue

June 2022 

Inspirational gardens

  • We visit a truly eclectic mix of gardens, from the immense Rock Garden at Chatsworth, recently reimagined by Tom Stuart-Smith, to a stylish urban garden complete with meadow, guest suite and spa designed by Jane Brockbank.
  • We enter the magical world of a walled garden in Shropshire, filled with romantic old roses for cutting – and share tips on how to grow them.
  • We also meet garden designer Dan Pearson, who shares his advice on growing eryngiums and recommends his favourite cultivars, while head gardener Ben Pope shares his seasonal tips on how to create a beautiful and productive summer garden.
  • Alys Fowler encourages us to get mulching in the second instalment of her soil series while Benjamin Pope recommends his favourite plants for June.
  • We also offer inspiration in the form of a garden and nursery in southwest France that is breaking the mould when it comes to drought-tolerant planting, contrasting beautifully with a green and lush, woodland-edge-style garden in the Netherlands.

Container gardening

  • Container gardening is a new special edition from Gardens Illustrated, the world’s leading gardens magazine. The issue is full of creative yet easy ideas for beautiful container planting schemes to brighten any garden situation – be it a shady garden corner, bright patio or compact balcony.
  • Each pot display includes a guide to the plants used, along with tips on care and maintenance, ideas on some more unusual container choices, and thoughts on how to adapt plantings as the seasons move on.
  • We ask Arthur Parkinson for his favourite cut-flower choices to grow in a pot and also have advice on how to grow an apple tree in a container. All this and a guide to essential kit for container gardening.
