Bloom | Issue Eight
CELEBRATING THE JOYS OF GARDENING AND NATURE
Bloom is full of practical advice, thought-provoking stories about nature and a celebration of all things green.
In issue 8, there’s a complete guide to growing show-stopping dahlias, pro advice on how to tempt birds to hang out in the garden and a deep dive into the world of mushrooms. We also meet a bunch of flower farmers for the inside scoop on growing British blooms and find out why our right to roam is more important than ever.
Plus there's stories about houseplants, botanical embroidery, botanic gardens, good books and lots of things to do, grow and cook throughout the season…
Beautiful and hardworking, Bloom is for anyone with a passion for nature: so dig in, whether you have a garden, a balcony or a windowsill.

Bloom is a magazine for gardeners, plant admirers, nature lovers, curious explorers and outdoor adventurers. It is beautiful and useful; it looks lovely and it works hard; it makes you muse on the handsomeness of nature and it inspires you to get out there and be a part of it.
Bloom promises practical gardening projects, an exploration of the natural world and a celebration of the beauty of all green spaces, whether they’re in the countryside or the middle of the city, on your windowsill or in an allotment, highly groomed or utterly wild.
