Gardens Illustrated has idyllic gardens and inspiring plants-a-plenty in this month’s issue, which features everything from English flower gardens to city retreats. Ben Preston offers three dark and sultry container displays for high summer with our Pots of Style feature and don’t miss designer Arne Maynard’s subtle garden for a West Sussex farmhouse.
We also focus on a south London garden that has been transformed into an elegant retreat and the heady scent of Nicotiana, a tobacco plant which adds a deft touch of colour to a flower garden. And there’s a taste of Spain, where the garden of a landscape architecture practice is a test bed for an exciting planting approach. Don’t miss this and lots more in July’s Gardens Illustrated.
