The Independent Online
THE FIRST issue of Gardens Illustrated came out this week. I have more than a passing interest in the launch, being an associate editor of the magazine. Beth Chatto writes on fritillaries; Penny Hobhouse describes Frank Cabot's American garden; Stephen Anderton explains how to cut grass with a difference; Anthony Sampson unravels his anatomy of a gardener; Michael Leapman profiles Sir Simon Hornby, chairman of W H Smith and president-in-waiting of the Royal Horticultural Society; and Eluned Price wanders in a bluebell wood at Fairhaven in Norfolk. The magazine, published every two months, costs pounds 2.95 from newsagents and garden centres. Independent readers can have a year's subscription for a special price of pounds 15.
