We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
Welcome to the autumn edition of Bloom! It’s packed with practical advice, inspiring stories about nature and a celebration of all things green.
In issue 7, we ask some of the UK’s best garden designers for their advice on planning a garden, there’s a pro’s guide to making natural inks from plants, as well as top tips on harvesting veg, lifting a lawn and creating arrangements with dried flowers.
There’s a round up of top books for dark nights, an intro to Korean natural farming and a moving story about gardeners in refugee camps. Plus more 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.
