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:
In volume 14 of rakesprogress we head to Somerset to discover the hidden delights of the electric daisy flower farm, travel to New York to photograph the city’s street trees, meet the plot to plate food pioneers fermenting a food revolution in a Victorian walled garden in Kent, discover how to bottle the essence of Scandinavia with rose growers and fragrance entrepreneurs Shaun and Lene Russell, hear about the remarkable underground world of fungi and reveal a modern twist on the art of Japanese Kusadama.
With a stunning Songs of Dada cover, the 244-page issue also includes the UK’s leading landscape designer Dan Pearson, who joins the editors in conversation to talk about the mentors who have shaped his life as a gardener, the lessons he has learnt the hard way and how his garden brings together his past, present and future. Plus writer Rebecca Solnit tells us the story of George Orwell’s roses.
We also interview the marine biologist whose Netflix film alerted the world to the horrors of ocean plastic pollution and showcase the work of the Dutch documentary photographer who uses her grandmother’s box camera to capture extraordinary portraits of people and their house plants. In short, it’s everything you’d expect from the original slow magazine about the art of gardens, plants and flowers and the perfect antidote to the mad whirl of our digital lives.
