This month – September Issue 2022

In this issue:

Summer's last hurrah

  • The September issue of Gardens Illustrated features gardens that are open to doing things differently. At a vineyard in Kent, designer Marian Boswall has created a sustainable garden reusing as many of the site’s materials as possible, while a family garden by Miria Harris expertly forges a link between a Victorian villa and its contemporary additions.
  • Inspired by Gertrude Jekyll, Richard Hartlage has created an imaginative garden in New England, while in a small city courtyard in Cambridge, Colm Joseph has used a bold but pared back palette of materials and plants.
  • The owner of a Cotswold garden continually learns from her ever-evolving planting schemes, while in East Sussex, a passion for propagation led to the creation of a nursery business.
  • Three top designers have given us plans for creating bulb meadows – long-season schemes that will reappear year after year.
  • Plant expert John Grimshaw advises on growing elegant and colourful Hesperantha.
  • Head gardener Jenny Barnes creates three container displays to see out summer.
  • Alys Fowler gives advice on supporting our soil through winter
  • Our new columnist Alice Vincent muses on the need to continually edit a garden.
