Garden Design magazine prints my article about Peckerwood Garden

I’m thrilled to tell you that I have an article in Garden Design‘s latest issue (June 2012). “The Plant Man” is a piece about Texas plantsman John Fairey and the design of his renowned garden, Peckerwood, which is home to an astounding collection of rare and unusual plants from northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Asia. Photographer Marion Brenner’s glowing images illustrate the architectural beauty of the garden. I hope you’ll pick up a copy when it appears on newsstands. If you’re a subscriber, your copy is probably already on its way. Update 6/12/12: My article is up on Garden Design‘s website now, so if you didn’t read it in print, you can read it online.

    I am very happy for you, congratulations! However, they didn’t need to have someone else photograph the garden, your own skills with the camera equal your skills with the pen (or keyboard).

  10. Congratulations! I’ll have to look for the magazine at B&N. We don’t subscribe to print anymore, so I have to go there to select specific issues to buy!

  11. Congrats on having your article published. Beautiful garden!

  13. Congratulations!….again. More and more good things coming your way. And, they’re well deserved.

    Pam, I quickly glanced at it and didn’t even look at the byline but thought it was an unusually well-done, substantive Garden Design piece. Can’t wait to go over it in detail now. I’m glad the big publications have discovered your talents. They’d be fools not to use you! Big congrats.

    Congratulations. It was the first article I read in this issue, very nice. And I remembered you blogged about PW previously and just looked at more photos. Not enough to satisfy, of course, I will have to make my own field trip.
