This year, bold, vivacious colours are blooming in North American gardens. And since there’s so much to love about colourful gardens, we’ve dedicated this Early Spring issue to the hottest hues. Perfect timing, too – just as winter is releasing its icy hold, we’re more than ready for bright and beautiful flowers.
What do you think? Are you ready to branch out and go bold this year? This issue is packed with delightful gardens to inspire you. You’ll know you’ve picked the right palette when your garden makes you smile. And isn’t that a big part of what gardening is all about?
I’d love to see photos of your plant colour combos. Post your pictures on Instagram and tag them with the hashtag #CGfloweroftheday.
