After a successful first guest post the other week, Olivia Hantken will be back taking care of the blog this week while I on holiday in Japan.

I will be posting plenty of shots on Instagram, so be sure to follow me @thesecretgardenblog

Hanging Gardens by Olivia Hantken

Vintage gardening magazines seem to be taking over more and more of my bookshelf, so I will be sharing selected images from some of my favourites over the next few weeks.

The first is a little gem I found called Sunset Ideas for Hanging Gardens. It was published in 1974 and features instructions and trends for a variety of suspended gardens. Some of my favourites are the giant boston fern (being watered from a ladder), the donkey tail sedum, the string of beads and the bonsai cedar with moss.
