Bloom is a magazine for gardeners, plant admirers, nature lovers, curious explorers and outdoor adventurers. It is beautiful and useful; it looks lovely and it works hard; it makes you muse on the handsomeness of nature and it inspires you to get out there and be a part of it.
Bloom promises practical gardening projects, an exploration of the natural world and a celebration of the beauty of all green spaces, whether they’re in the countryside or the middle of the city, on your windowsill or in an allotment, highly groomed or utterly wild.
Issue 12 – Summer 2022
Issue 12 is packed with things to do, stories from nature and an unbounded enthusiasm for this wonderful planet we call home.
If you're looking for expert gardening tips, you'll find a guide to ditching pricey compost in favour of the ancient practice of hugelkultur, pro hints on growing salvias, a brilliant piece on designing an immersive back garden (in even the smallest urban space) and a how-to on taking cuttings. There's also recipes for biodynamic plant remedies and advice on sowing a flowering lawn.
We're also dishing up stories on crustaceans, growers making booze and gardeners who have inherited the land they garden on. There's top political nature books, gooseberry recipes, a 101 on natural dyes and a step-by-step on making string from nettles... Do not miss this!
Beautiful and hardworking, Bloom is for anyone with a passion for nature: so dig in, whether you have a garden, a balcony or a windowsill.
