rakesprogress is a progressive guide to gardens, plants and flowers. It’s a window to the world outside with beautiful photography, great reads and some helpful advice.
In this issue:
Issue 13, another bumper issue of rakesprogress, partly created in lockdown, we travel to Japan to walk the ancient Kumano Kodo Trail, we head to the Cerrado in Brazil, an area under threat which houses 11,000 plant species. We also walk among the traditional hay meadowlands of England, meet the weaver who threads thorns in the woods and even discover how Napoleon, exiled for a lifetime of warmongering to the remote island of St Helena, finally found peace in gardening. and all of this is mixed in with our usual bunch of still life, fashion, fragrance and flowers.
This issue also comes with Issue 2 of rakes SENSE – the art of fragrance – we talk to Geza Schoen, the scientists who are bottling the smells of literature, catch up with Christine Nagel at Hermes. We examine synesthesia, the smell of courage and pack in some stunning imagery for a summer of scent.
