Friday Favorite: The English Garden

September 29th, 2017

Many years ago, I quit subscribing to gardening magazines. I was frustrated by all the ads and lack of good content. A few years ago, a friend recommended ‘The English Garden’ magazine. It was expensive, so I never subscribed. This summer I got a subscription as a birthday gift.



My first issue was fantastic, I read it cover to cover. It’s full of articles, real articles about beautiful gardens. The second issue is great as well, I’m super happy with this magazine. ‘Northern Gardener’ is another great publication, it’s published by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society. It’s full of great articles (some written by yours truly) and isn’t full of product placements and ads. If you’ve been missing quality gardening magazines, give one of these two options a try. They are also fantastic gift ideas for those green thumbs in your life.

In Print

I sell photos to print magazines all the time along with writing a lot of articles for digital sources. While I was in Seattle I received my copies of Northern Gardener Magazine which contained an article I wrote and provided photos for.

It’s rather nice to receive a paper copy of a magazine with your name it in, even though I sell articles for online sources it’s just not quite the same as seeing your name in print.
magazine article 2
This article about something I’m very passionate about: Micronutrients! If you’re interested in a great magazine about cold climate gardening check out Northern Gardener Magazine (it’s published by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society).

If you subscribe you’ll notice my photos in it every so often, one of my photos even graced the cover once.
