Read the May/June Issue of The American Gardener!
The May/June edition of The American Gardener magazine is out!
Debuting in this issue is the first installment of “Garden Destinations,” which replaces our former “RAP Gardens in Focus.” This regular new department will highlight the garden attractions of cities throughout North America. We start with Buffalo, New York, notable for its Garden Walk event, billed as “America’s largest garden tour,” where hundreds of homeowners across the city open up their gardens to visitors.
Also in this issue, you’ll find feature articles including a profile of evening primroses (Oenothera spp.) and their relatives, many of which have evening-blooming flowers that attract pollinators (and most of which are native); a design-focused piece on how gardeners can create a natural garden using commonly available regional natives; an article on growing grapes in home gardens, with descriptions of several different kinds of grape varieties; Marianne Willburn’s essay on why keeping garden journals is important; and a photo-driven piece on how to design and plant beautiful summer containers even in regions with challenging weather/climate conditions.
In addition, you can read about the news at AHS, take a look at book reviews, and find something to do this summer in our regional happenings.
