I’ve been shooting for the Gardener’s Supply catalog for a few years and this is the first cover I’ve done. It’s a great company. Sure, they carry a remarkable selection of cool garden tools and innovative products, but they also employ some of the nicest people around. Everyone I deal with there is so darn generous and friendly ! Maybe it’s the Vermont water or the nearby Ben &Jerry’s discount outlet or the fact that they’re employee owned. Whatever it is, I wish we all had more of it.
Styling and plant wrangling by the talented Nancy Ondra. Her mom made the little purple fence– a perfect counterpoint to the poppies.
When I built raised beds last year, I struggled with the corners. Tried 4×4 blocks at first-but getting them assembled required two more arms and three more hands than I had. Finally got the Gardener’s Supply pre-made corners for the second set and the beds flew together. Highly recommended!
