2022 Harvest Issue landing!

Hello Colorado Gardener Readers!

Colorado Gardener: 2022 Harvest Issue landing!

Our Harvest print issue will be out soon. Look for it beginning Aug 23 and online a few days later. Topics include Crevice Gardening by Panayoti Kelaidis, Honeyberries by Bryan Prud'Homme, Witch's Herbs by Sara Stewart Martinelli, Plant Select Turns 25 by Mikl Brawner, Galling Mysteries by R Gary Raham, and more garden humor from John Hershey. Paula Ogilvie's Botany piece tells you why some trees hold onto their leaves all winter.

You may have heard that David Salman, founder of HIgh Country Gardens, passed away in June. We include a tribute to David by Lauren Springer.


As sometimes happens I had to hold a story about the Gardens on Spring Creek in Fort Collins for next Spring's issue. But I urge you to go visit. The plants all look different now than they will in April & May. Their three newest gardens are all coming into their own. Lauren Springer's "Undaunted Garden" looks fantastic - so many cool & interesting plants! The adjacent "Foothills" and "Prairie Gardens" feature all native plantings. Bryan Fischer who designed "Prairie" says it really comes into its own in August. Here are a couple of photos taken in July.

Happy harvest season!
