Rakes Progress #16
210 x 275 mm, 242 pages (plus The Art of Fragrance supplement)
Editors: Victoria Gaiger
The progressive guide to gardens, plants and flowers. As well as garden-adjacent things that come about from a creative approach to the theme, interesting digressions that take you into the realms of art, fashion, food, architecture, animals, but always bring you closer to nature.
Another multi-seasonal issue covering a quarry garden in the Mediterranean, India's largest flower market, a pocket of green in Covent Garden and more. As usual, each copy is accompanied by the free supplement-turned-sister publication Rakes Sense: The Art of Fragrance. Perfect for the gardener, florist or perfumer in your life, with some necessary words of wisdom from the editors to boot: ‘Winter is here. Spring seems an eternity away. The one thing we know for sure is that it won't last.’
