Atlantic Canadian gardeners are in for a treat! The premiere issue of Gardens East arrives at newsstands across the Maritimes today! The magazine is a publication of Gardens West, a magazine that has become so popular in Western Canada because of its practical information for gardeners, always told with a touch of humour and the personal experiences of real gardeners.
There will also be a handful of regular departments on plants and flowers, birds and bugs, as well as features on local gardens and the exceptional gardeners who have created them. I've been busy working on the articles for these feature gardens, and I can attest to the fact that we have some pretty spectacular gardens here in the Maritimes!
Here is the cover shot from the premiere issue, which features the gardens of Duff and Donna Evers - a breathtaking lakeside utopia created by true gardeners. Enjoy!
