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 spring edition of Bloom! It’s packed with practical advice, inspiring 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.
