I'm dying to try climbing roses over my garage! From Gardening The Easy Way

Love the idea of raised beds ever since Brooke Giannetti put them in in her front yard

In Gardening The Easy Way they show you how to turn your garage into a potting shed

There's a story about turning a garden shed from Lowe's into this sweet retreat

I enjoyed the entire issue. There's a feature on peonies and dahlias, two of my favorite flowers. This is one of those special little magazines that you will save forever to use as a reference and for inspiration.
