5-0 out of 5 stars As always a great magazine
I have always LOVED Southern Living magazine. You can be assured that if you cook from the recipes contained in this magazine, they will usually be very delicious. I used to subscribe just for the recipes. I now also enjoy the articles on travel and on decorating. This is a great "home" magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best for Home Decor, Travel and Food
I've just renewed my subscription to Southern Diving for the 12th time -- that's 12 years of the very best in home design, interior decoration, gardening, recipes and travel. My favorite feature is the Southern Journal that's always (now) on the back page -- this is a slice-of-life vignette of the little details that those of us who grew up in the Old South recognize -- and identify with -- at first glance. Subjects range from the front porch to hush puppies to SEC football to sweet tea and usually transport us into treasured memories.

Although the magazine seems to be mostly appreciated for recipes (and the holiday issues especially are a treasure of traditional and stylish treats), Southern Living's travel pages are full of information on the best destinations in the South. Each month there's at least one, and often more, in-depth piece about some unusual and fascinating place to visit.

The magazine features home designs, interior decoration and some sort of project -- instructions for making a complicated drapery valance or how to install a glass buffet shelf or the best way to organize a closet.

I've subscribed to all the home magazines over the years but SL is the one I've been faithful to. I've traveled to new places, made their projects and cooked their food, all to a chorus of compliments and accolades from family and friends.

Seems like there should be a reward for faithfulness in terms of subscription rate savings.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thick magazine full of color gardening photos and reviews.
I just moved to the South so I thought I better learn about the area! This is a fun magazine. It's very thick, with sections on vacation spots, restaurant reviews, garden how-tos, home remodeling, and lots of recipes. I've already learned how to eat a steamed crab and that there are bed and breakfasts on islands off the Georgia coast.

4-0 out of 5 stars Rip Off
GREAT Magazine...BUT, Do NOT order through this site. They will charge you $19.97 on your credit card, then send you a bill in the mail for $32.00. You are getting ripped off!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Just really interesting stuff
The recipes are always too hard for me... well, o.k. I COULD make them, but anything with 15 steps--I am not interested. But the articles are intresting... the pictures are lush, and the magazine informative. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Sunsets
I have been a subscriber of Sunset magazine for 25 years. my first subscription was received in Texas and at that time our area was not included so was not impressed, but dreamed of being able to travel to the places in wonderful articles about California. Then I moved to Southern California and there I was very much interested in the magazine diffrently. There are always interesting recipies, gardening articles, places to go, and beautiful pictures. On a cold winter night when there is much rain looking at the beautiful pictures changes sadness into gladness. I give subscriptions as gifts to my adult children and they very much enjoy the articles.

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome magazine in every respect
This magazine has it all! Excellent travel information, great decorating and gardening ideas, and wonderful recipes. It is extremely well organized, and the advertisement layout keeps the articles in the forefront.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for gardener's in the west
The rest of the country be...well, anyway, the problem with most gardening books and magazines is they seem to be speaking to people who live in the tundra for 1/2 the year. Those whom God has blessed by ordaining us to live in the wonderful west do not have that problem. So it becomes tedious each year to read about how to "winter" your garden when you are still weeding and caring for it and would probably fined for stopping. This magazine is the answer to that annoyance.

Aside from gardening information they also have ideas for decorating and camping and other family fun things. The only annoyance in this magazine can be found in their recipe section. It is nothing if not gourmet. To be perfectly honest, in CA I don't have time to be a gourmet cook. The weather is too nice to be stuck inside doing all that work. But, I do use their recipes once/month to have our "formal" meal. And they are quite delicious.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tries To Be Too Much For Too Many
The Sunset Western Garden Book is the definitive reference for anyone gardening in the west, but if you're expecting Sunset Magazine to be the definitive periodical for gardening in the west, you'll be disappointed.

Each issue includes sections on gardening, travel, foods, home, and even books. After you subtract the ads, gardening content is down in the 10% range. And within that small section, the magazine tries to have something relevant for all western areas, from Alaska to Arizona to Idaho to Oregon, and everyplace in between. When they omit an area, the following month you'll see a letter to the editor complaining about it.

The other sections have similar issues. The travel section has to have destinations in every region. The food section has to have regional cuisine from every region. The home section even has to feature homes in every region.

Living alone, I don't cook much, let alone prepare fancy dishes. My biggest decorating issue is keeping the clutter down. The only travel I do is the commute to work. And I'd rather read books than read about books. I also don't care much about gardens in climates vastly different than my own, so I have no interest in the obligatory tropical plants covers. That leaves only a handful of pages that interest me.

If you're a well-rounded person, with interests in more areas than just gardening, you may well find Sunset an interesting magazine. The articles are all well written. The whole magazine is the highest level of quality. They do a great job of writing about everything they write about. It's just that their scope is just far too wide to be a comprehensive guide to living in such a diverse area as the west.

If you like Better Homes and Gardens, and you live in the west, you'll love Sunset Magazine. If you're looking for an extension of their definitive books on gardening in the west, you'll be disappointed by how little relevant content you'll find each month.

One other thing to mention: Sunset Magazine has made most of their website available only to subscribers, unless you're on AOL. So if you want to get to any of their excellent online content, you might want to subscribe even if there only is enough content in the print magazine to hold your attention for the walk from the mailbox to the door.

Overall, it's a great magazine that simply spreads itself too thin by trying to cover too much for too many different people. You may even find you can finish the parts that interest you while waiting in line at the grocery store check-out counter.

On the other hand, if your interest include all of the departments (gardening, food, home, travel and books), and you're interested in all the regions that make up the western United States, then don't hesitate a minute longer. Subscribe. I'm just not that well rounded.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wish i still subscribed!
I have many years' worth of bound copies of this treasure of a magazine. I lived in Southern California for 3 years in the early 80s and it was a magazine I really became addicted to, even after moving back to the East Coast. I subscribed for years after. When I was married, this helped me so much with home ideas, not to mention fabulous recipes that really, for the most part, never seem dated. The ideas I got from this magazine! It really helped me grow and see things differently. I can't bring myself to get rid of the many years of bound copies that I have. Such a classy publication! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Uninspring Name. Great Magazine.
The magazine first started about a 100 years ago and was revived about 10-15 years ago. As with its straightforward name, it is simply the best general interest decorating and design lifestyle magazine in the U.S. right now.

House & Garden is an aspiration and upscale magazine (as most lifestyle mags out there - who aspires to less than what they have? :-).

While they do explain some aspects of "doing-it yourself," that is not the focus of this magazine. Its very broad based in the styles it presents (architecture, design, furnishings, styles, garden design, etc ...). Unlike some more specific magazines, they showcase the full gamut of choices available to you not only in design but also in price. While it is upscale, they are not pretentious and present the full range from traditional to whimsical and from Ikea to limited designer pieces.

While ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST tends to tell you how you should one-up your neighbors in gold-plated faucets and how you should arrange a 15-piece Rodin scuplture garden on your 75 acres, HOUSE & GARDEN is more for people who have money, a sense of real value, and an understanding of style already - that you might have a decorator but you don't just hand over a blank check - that you are actively managing the process of designing or re-decorating your house.

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST also used to bring furnishings and art for their 'celebrity' coverage - not exactly sure how that is useful for anyone.

As for ELLE DECOR or METRO HOME - both are useful for the ads but style-wise and as information sources - very weak. BTW, ELLE DECOR and METRO HOME are owned by the same publisher so they alternate months - it's virtually impossible to tell them apart now. Again, both of them are more magalog that magazine. Which can be useful in decorating but if you're looking for solid editorial - H&G is the only one of the 4 here that does that.

And yes, there are ads in H&G but then again, if you are in the process of decorating or remodeling - you should find the ads useful and relevant.

H&G is the like a decorator who understands you will have some say in how you furnish your house - they understand that you want to know what's out there and will pick and choose not only on style but on price - that you might pair an expensive table next to a lamp from Ikea. If that sounds like what you're looking for - H&G is a great source of useful & relefant info & photo examples.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not at all what I thought...
I made the mistake of subscribing to this magazine sight unseen. I received a very good offer to subscribe, that I didn't want to turn down. I thought this was going to be like a Better Homes and Gardens, or Country Living but it wasn't. This appears to be a good choice for design professionals. I was just not very impressed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine - If you like ads.
It seemed like there were 2 articles & 80 pages of advertisements.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST for someone that is interested in Interior Decorating
I was on this kick for about 4 years now on Fabrics and Colors for a Bed and Breakfast (I want to open one) and I subscribed to "Victoria" and "Country Living" for that Country feel.... well I subscribed to "House and Garden" for every thing else. I LOVE this Magazine. The pictures are gourgeous, the ideas are innovative and you can tell that the editors and writers take their job seriously because this Magazine is done with such Pizazz.

It's not as costly at "Architectural Digest" but I rate it right up there with it. Minus the celebrity portions in each edition. In the mass of the many subscriptions I was getting (a whopping 16!!!) I still get this one and Glad of it.

Happy Reading

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, inspiring
I've subscribed to House and Garden in all of its incarnations since the mid 1980s when I was in law school, pulling together fabric and paint for my desolate study area. The current version of H&G is under the very capable leadership of Dominique Browning, who also writes beautiful, thoughtful editorials every month about anything - from her home's cracked retaining walls to cooking with her sister. I beeline for her writing first, then I disappear into the pages of stunningly gorgeous interior designs and architecture. The annual "color" issue is always good. Sometimes an issue is devoted to an entire city and all its charms regarding interiors, antiques, architecture, public gardens, private unique homes and "must -sees". The issues about Chicago and about Paris France were particularly well done, even though I may not visit either anytime soon. There's a nice dusting of garden stories throughout the year that are informative and helpful without being too much. Every time I decide to let the subscription go for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with H&G, I always...somehow... come back. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy living for women and their families
Better Homes and Gardens is really about easy living. Each issue includes articles about friends and family, gardening, interior design, building, family matters, food, health, and shopping. This is the magazine I reach for between work and errands because the articles are easy to read and brief yet interesting and inspiring. A few feature examples: window box herbs, dieting myths, cooking scones, what's new in family cars, and more. Better Homes also emphasizes family by incorporating activities for children or for the whole family from season to season. Better Homes is a good magazine for holiday ideas, too, with recipes and crafts to decorate your home and enjoy with your children. Although there are more sophisticated home magazines out there, I'm glad I have Better Homes lying around when I have a minute to relax.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photography, lousy articles, too much advertising
After hearing such good reviews of this magazine, I picked up a copy of this month's Better Homes and Gardens from the grocery store as a trial before subscription. The photography was wonderful, and it boasted some great ideas through the photography, but the articles were too brief and lousy. Moreover, I was thoroughly disappointed with the overabundance of advertisement that litters this magazine. I was very much disappointed. I was expecting more than just good ideas from pictures.

2-0 out of 5 stars AKA...Better Homes and Advertising
I ordered this magazine recently only to cancel my subscription. There is way too much advertising in the magazine and none of the crafts or projects really enticed me to get creative. It's too bad. Go with Martha Stewart Living or Sunset magazines instead, both high quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hello...
For those of you that complain about advertisments in magazines, what are you whining about? How do you think
magazines get a nice chunk of their funding? They have companies pay to have their products advertised in the mag.
so shut up.

On a happier note, I love this magazine. It has wonderfuly lovely ideas for make your house look beautiful though some of the ideas do seem a little pricey.

1-0 out of 5 stars Every other page is an advertisment
Better Homes and Gardens has enticing covers, but once you flip through the pages, you are bombarded with advertising. It seems that the magazine's actual content consists of less than 10 pages. I'm left feeling short changed every month that my issue arrives. I do not plan on renewing this subscription. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Can dig it!
I love, Love, LOVE this magazine. It is the perfect combination of technique, design, and inspiration every issue. If you are a beginning gardener, you cannot do much better than study this magazine. If you are an experienced gardener, you will learn something new every issue.

This is one of the few gardening magazines that covers the US West -- it is different out here, and they know it. It is rare that you will read in any of their articles, "If it has not rained this week..." which is always a sign to Californians that the article does not apply to us.

One of my favorite features is the semi-regular tool essays. It must be a guy thing, but I really enjoy their tool expert explain the proper way to use a tool. Since I started paying attention to his advice, my back has stopped aching so much at the end of a garden day, I know how to keep my shovels sharp (you would not believe what a difference this makes), and I gave away the leaf blower -- there is a real peacefulness to raking leaves that you will never achieve with the Devil's hair dryer.

However, I think the best feature is the tips from other readers. I have learned so many clever things from other gardeners volunteering their suggestions -- one person suggested putting vegetable scraps in a blender jar (it's airtight, so it won't smell) and when it is full, just whizz the stuff and pour onto the compost hear. That tip alone has paid off in my compost pile being active year round. I turn to this section first every time.

It is a great magazine, you won't regret subscribing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fine Gardening is more than fine for all levels of gardeners
Whatever skill level you have -- avid gardener to willing accomplice -- Fine Gardening is a good reference and source of inspiration. From the attractive photography and appealing design to informative content, Fine Gardening packs a lot of useful information in a manner that both beginners and experts can enjoy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I really have nothing bad to say about this magazine except perhaps that I wish it was cheaper. That being said, I still purchase it regardless of the price. The 3 year subscription price is quite good.

This magazine is a great combination of what I think a gardening magazine should be: great photos, great ideas, great instruction.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the sophisticated and serious gardener.
Fine Gardening is a magazine packed with information for the serious and sophisticated gardener. It's articles and departments provide careful consideration of aesthetics and design. There can be found in one issue a range of ideas to adapt to the skill level of the gardener. For the beginner there is instruction on designing container gardens for the summer or for the serious garden architect there is detailed instruction on building waterfalls.

For those who just love to drool, a multitude of pictures are provided within each issue. One can imagine planting a jungle and completely transforming one's front yard with articles such as "Front Yard Gardens Make a Strong First Impression." The magazine presents a wide variety of gardening styles to choose from, natural, cottage and more formal designs.

Each edition is broken down between Departments, the monthly columns and articles which vary from edition to edition. Departments include Tips, Garden Architecture, Working Gardener, Praiseworthy plants. Basic, Container Gardens, Master Class, Reviews, and Q & A. The departments are packed with information for the serious and neophyte gardener. A recent issue had information on such issues as solar greenhouses the fertilizing benefits of a thundershower, composts, pests, pronunciation of Latin names and garden follies.

Each edition abounds with interesting and creative articles for the reader. Counting the articles in a recent edition revealed that there were nine articles which provided detailed information, lovely photographs and garden diagrams. They range from information about Fritillaries, old roses, building rustic garden structures, adding purple to the garden, circular elements, designing outdoor places to entertain. and evergreen hollies.

If you are serious about gardening or if you are just beginning and want an instructional tool that is tasteful and informative this is a magazine for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars You'll save every issue
Fine Gardening lives up to its title. The features and information are outstanding--the kind of thing you want to hold on to for future reference. The photography is also excellent, and again, you'll want the photos for future ideas. The only reason why I did not give the magazine 5 stars is the enormous amount of advertising in it. One would think that a magazine as expensive as this one would not need to have so much advertising, but there is enough for it to be quite a distraction. Nevertheless, if you garden or even plan to, you might want to pick up an issue or suggest that this would be a good gift for you. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Gardening as a Lifestyle
I have subscribed to Garden Design for some time, and have given it as Christmas presents. As someone else noted, the cover is seductive, and I think that is how I got hooked years ago. The little quotes on the bottom of every page make me read the magazine through multiple times. I keep my back copies to reference whenever I need an idea for my garden (especially useful in the rainy winter months).

Be aware that this is not a magazine that is heavy on gardening, but it is heavy on design. You will learn very little about horticulture, but a lot about what is trendy and stylish, and I guess like many fashion magazines the fun here is in being a voyeur.

Would I ever paint the wall around my back yard hot magenta as one designer did? Probably not -- but I thought about painting it terra cotta. Would I ever buy the $2000 umbrella and stand to dine under -- definitely not, but I would love to dine under one.

So Garden Design is fun and frivilous, inspiring and thought provoking. Just don't look for information about what is wrong with your tomatoes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons
Pros: It is beautiful to look at. The feel of it is nice and the photography is top notch. It showcases innovative design & people in the industry.

Cons: Not very practical in terms of instruction. It's good for getting ideas but there isn't much instruction on how the garden shown got to that point. It has a lot of product reviews that are, for the most part, for very expensive products.

I don't look forward to reading it as much as say "Fine Gardening" which I read cover to cover.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I am a landscape design student and I love this magazine. Excellent articles accompanied by excellent pics and not as many ads as other magazines (the ads are getting very obnoxious). This magazine is really helping me through school.

4-0 out of 5 stars For Avid Gardeners
I'm not an avid gardener, so this magazine is a little out of my league. Garden Design is written for those who are really passionate about cultivating their gardens and are committed to being a more successful gardener. But I can't resist the breathtaking cover of each issue and the luscious photos throughout! Just because I'm not a pro doesn't mean I don't enjoy this magazine. Although it is thinner than most (around 105 pages), it is full of garden inspiration from extensive articles on shaping a garden from nature to short snippets about a particular flower. Some departments include Access (how to incorporate some of the ideas into your home), info on where to find things (when you have to have that Aster featured on the cover), From the Editor, Dirt (backyard birding, fall cleanup, etc.), Technique, Sage Advice, and Options (to find out what all the rage is in gardening), not to mention the lengthier features from month to month. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars It ain't easy being green...
When I moved from my house with a small, elaborate and alas poorly-maintained garden in London to a house in the midwestern United States with a plot of land that would command millions were it in the centre of London, I had visions of majestic hedgerows and beds of flowers and vines and garden paths. Indeed, I have such (at a friend's house!). I have a few plots that are irregularly tended, but, over the course of the past decade, they have grown bit by bit each summer into more interesting plots. Part of what has given me inspiration is the idea of the ideal English Garden, perhaps the quintessential gardening goal.

To this end, 'The English Garden' has fueled my thoughts and my ambitions, plant-wise. I am particularly pleased with the latest issue, for they are beginning a series entitled How to create an English Garden, something that, while I have striven for aspects to match, has alluded me these past many years.

Articles in each issue are classified under the following categories: Glorious Gardens, a section that seeks out particular, interesting gardens around England, small and large, that conform to the English Garden ideal, as well as the occasional garden from abroad; Gardening Matters, in which the mechanics of gardening are explained, including design, planning, acquisition, seasonal transitions, and problems; Out and About, which looks for travel opportunities, gardening events worldwide, and product information; and Regulars, which includes letters, question and answer section (both very informative), book reviews, and a column entitled Kitchen Garden which talks about food-gardening as well as well as small, indoor garden plants. Regulars contributors include master gardeners David Manson, Rory Mower, Susan Chivers, and Helen Gunn.

The past few issues have included articles entitled In Town: An Artist's London Garden, which shows that the tradition of painting in one's garden didn't stop with Monet, and requires talent in both painting and gardening for most; Historical Perspectives: The Queen's Secret Walled Garden which has recently been opened to the public, and Opening Out: Restoration in the Wye Valley, a story on the resurrection of a garden in the west, near one of my favourite parts of Britain.

I always turn green with envy upon seeing the wonderful gardens, and it makes me wish I had a green thumb and much more time and energy to devote to cultivation of beauty. Alas, 'tis not to be in my life for the foreseeable future, but I do learn quite a bit by reading English Gardens, and it helps me maintain my sense of England.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just received first issue and am enthralled
The magazine is aptly titled and the pictures are beautiful. This will be one of those magazines that friends dropping by will pick up and browse through, gardeners will be inspired and probably, those blasted subscription cards will be put into use. It certainly is a quality production and the text that accompanies the stories is informative as well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Organic but thin
Still the leader for US Organic resources, techniques, and current resources, _Organic Gardening_ has been deeply downsized since its inception as _Organic Gardening and Farming_ decades ago. It now contains beautiful pictures, but not much in-depth information in each issue besides A) a plant that can't grow in your zone, B) birds that you'll never see, C) yet another article about tomatoes and D) occasionally good information to help you grow a healthier garden (celery growing tips, Clopyralid in municipal compost heaps).

I subscribe to this magazine primarily to support the EXTREMELY informative Forums found on its webiste, www.organicgardening.com under 'gardener2gardener'.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite
There is much practical advice on gardening, especially vegetable gardening, but the more experience I gained in the garden, the less I got from this magazine. There is little in terms of garden design information. Occasionally there is an undertone of superiority over their emphasis on the "organic" that I find annoying and unnecessary.

3-0 out of 5 stars Three and a half stars
When I first started gardening, this magazine helped with easy to read and clear articles. Now that I've been gardening for 20 years, I wish that the articles were more in depth and that there were more of them. While I understand that giving too much information can be overwhelming for beginners, I feel that the standard needs raising just a bit.
Having said that, I'd still suggest buying the magazine. Each issue contains information worth reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have!
This is one of those magazines that I tend to read cover to cover.

In recent months OG has changed the format and having done so, the number of pages has been decreased. At first glance this may seem like a bad move, however the change has made the magazine even better! The articles offer a wide range of topics and they are to the point. Some of the features include tips and suggestions from OG readers.

You need not be a current organic gardener to enjoy this magazine. Most of the ideas are for your typical backyard enthusiast who wants to explore new ways to enjoy their hobby without the need for extensive chemicals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone.
Organic Gardening (OG) is an excellent gardening reference for gardeners of all skill levels.

4-0 out of 5 stars A venerable old title rejuvenates itself for 21st century
After having put aside this magazine some years ago because it no longer seemed to have the breadth I expected of a national gardening magazine, I picked it up again recently and was very pleased.

The issues I've seen include a broad range of topics, everything from practical matters like such as how to grow cyclamen from seed to multiple design suggestions for a particular kind of plant. The abundant photos are lovely. There is a nice balance between regional focus and presenting items that interest everyone. And the magazine itself -- the paper and the way it is put together -- is made to withstand years of browsing. It is hard to put this one out with the recyclables because there are so many interesting tidbits and lovely pictures.

Why not five stars? For me, some of the writing and editing still falls short of what I expect of a magazine of this stature. The titularly regional columns, especially, could benefit from some closer attention to detail and an awareness that others outside those zones will read the information with interest and, as in a recent piece about berberis, concern. After reading that bit, I had NO idea about whether I should join the ranks of berberis abstainers until truly sterile plants are available. Is it a problem everywhere in the US? Or just in the Northeast?

I accept that some may see my wish to see CLEAR information about zones and better (less casual and broad stroked) book reviews, for examples, as pickiness. But although it is good to see this grand old publication make a strong re-start, one hopes that the efforts continue apace.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like it
This is my favorite gardening magazine. It's well written with nice photos. It seems to strike a balance between giving enough technical information to be useful while still being good reading. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine for orchids
Out of all of the magazines that there are, this is the only one that I renew every year. Orchids is the magazine for the American Orchid Society (AOS) and it contains tons of information. Everything from orchid culture, conservation and even an advice column. In the back is advertisements from growers all over the world. The prices for the plants are great.

I recommend this magazine but only if you decide to join the AOS because the AOS gives you a free book, a list of growers in the U.S. and abroad, a 10% discount in the AOS emporium, discounts on other AOS magazines and the Orchids magazine for free. ... Read more

Each Issue goes to the nth degree to carry to explore the uses and social history of herbs. The information is laid out in columns with interesting information and pictures in the margins. Most articles have references to where to find associated information of the subject. This is not just a good read; the magazine contains hands-on projects from soap making to Pharmacopoeia. The small amount of advertising is relevant to the world of herbs. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Garden Design Magazine published in English
As a professional landscape architect and plant lover, I am always on the lookout for inspiring, up to date, well written and photographed stories about design and plants. A lot to ask for, I know, but Gardens Illustrated is the best periodical that does all this that I've found to date. Consistently beautiful photographs and thorough descriptions of those photographs, interesting articles about current designers and their landscape designs, and correctly labelled latin & common names for the plants all make this a "keep every issue" kind of magazine!
The only drawback I'd say for this magazine is that since it is published in the UK, most stories highlight gardens and designers in Europe, and focus on plants that grow in that region. So, I know that sometimes I will not be able to get the same exact plants to work in my region. But the design ideas and photographs certainly outweigh this drawback.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning
It's hard to imagine ever parting with one these issues--the lush photographs are accompanied by articles written by designers and garden writers throughout the world. Witty, insightful, and absolutely gorgeous. OK. It costs a sheckle or two, but it is WELL worth it! Share it with a friend! ... Read more
