This luscious lemon cake is born of a simple herbal container gardens... that is the kind of rich and expanded concept of container gardening that we explore in this new, colorful volume.
Last summer amongst the craziness of decorating trees and wrapping packages for HOLIDAY, my team and I produced and photographed an entire magazine on Container Gardening. It will be out in the coming months and I am so pleased with the results. You will discover all aspects of the container gardening lifestyle including cooking, decorating, easy growing and tending tips and special fairy gardens created just for children. There are simply delicious herbal cocktails and tea cakes, beautiful patio gardens, window boxes, billowy hanging baskets and field trips to spectacular nurseries like SNUG HARBOR FARM in Kennebunk, Maine. The best plants for mixed containers, urns and inside tips on soil, drainage and pretty ways to top off your plant pots... I not only enjoyed the shooting of it all thoroughly, but have been totally enthralled with reliving it all through the photography these last few weeks of dark evenings and snowy afternoons.
Look for it on newsstands in April and try your hand at the easiest and most engaging form of gardening, ever.
And stay tuned for more news from us very soon!!
