Garden Making Design Issue

The Winter Design issue has always been a strong seller for Garden Making. This cover should be no exception to that pattern. Here’s what publisher Michael Fox has to say about it:

“When we launched four years ago, some people were surprised that we’d publish a new issue of a gardening magazine in Canada in November, a time of year when most gardens are put to bed for winter,” says Fox. “But with its design theme, our winter issues consistently sell as well as (or better) than other issues.”

"The cover features a stunning urn planted and styled for Garden Making by Paul Zammit, the Nancy Eaton director of horticulture at Toronto Botanical Garden. Foliage is front and centre in the design package with articles about fancy-leaf begonias, plants with silver foliage and hardy ferns, as well as three urban front-yard gardens in Toronto and the best ways to light your landscape at night.”

Garden Making is quarterly, every three months, timed with the seasons.
