If you’re a subscriber to Gardens Illustrated you may already be enjoying our November issue. If not (latest subscriptions offer here by the way…) then – good news – our latest edition will also be available in all good newsagents very soon.


This month – November Issue 2022

In this issue: Comfort and joy

The December issue of Gardens Illustrated is packed with winter inspiration. Our legendary gift guide features stylish ideas for all budgets, from stocking fillers to investment pieces. There are three exclusive seasonal decorations from Verde Flower Co using dried flowers: a mantelpiece cloud, a wild tablescape and a Christmas wreath for you to try, plus ideas for cooking outdoors over an open fire, with wintry recipes from chef Gill Meller.

And of course the issue is packed with plenty of garden inspiration – a Berkshire garden that provides winter drama on a grand scale, a modern twist on a Georgian garden by designer Anoushka Feiler, an ingenious long, thin family garden by Jo Thompson packed with interesting features, and a wind-lashed Australian garden filled with tough plants and cloud-pruned shrubs and trees.

We take a fresh look at oft-maligned conifers – Matthew Pottage, curator at RHS Garden Wisley highlights some attractive species for evergreen structure. We round up our 14 favourite gardening books of 2022, with an opportunity to win them all.

Seven leading garden professionals share their favourite green escapes and columnist Alice Vincent reveals the one thing she wants for Christmas.
