What challenges do you face in your garden? Looking for some suggestions for new perennials, shrubs and groundcovers? We take a “Garden Solutions” approach with the Spring 2018 issue of Garden Making.
We’ve posed a series of questions to Garden Making Guest Editor Stephen Westcott-Gratton, who will provide a range of plants that are a good fit for particular situations. Some of the scenarios we’re tackling:
- I need more colour in early spring (more petals, more colour…)
- What are a few easy-to-grow shrubs for a small space?
- What are some under-appreciated perennials I should try?
