Welcome to the July issue of Gardens Illustrated: The Small Gardens Issue

Get uplifting designs to bring small spaces to life. This issue of Gardens Illustrated is all about delivering small garden success as we focus on design and planting ideas tailor-made for your compact – but no-less-gorgeous – outdoor spaces.


We’ve got everything you need to make your small space sing. Discover a small but elegant family garden on the Kent packed with practical, stylish outside spaces for all the family. See lush, green planting and Japanese touches in Bristol. And visit an urban plot outside an architecturally designed house in Clapham that creates a colourful, useful space by borrowing from a neighbouring landscape of wildflowers and grass.

Plus, in addition to all the small space inspiration, we reveal the space saving essential gear you’ll need to make the most your smaller spaces.

In our monthly Plant Profile we go deep with Tulbaghia. Grown for their pretty umbels, this bulbous perennial lends an airy elegance to a planting scheme. And eminent plantsperson Helen Dillon mixes up the unusual and familiar in a seaside garden in south Dublin where bold exotics mingle with old favourites.
