Cedar Magazine – Issue 02: A Borrowed Landscape
Cedar is a travel & lifestyle magazine inspired by nature.
“Cedar was born out of our shared passion for gardening and love of nature. It’s a journal of people whose lives are irrevocably entwined with the natural world, whether in horticulture, food or art, and it’s a document of the places we have visited throughout the year. At Cedar we enjoy being present in the moment, immersed in the slower pace of life, a yearning for simplicity that is symptomatic of our hectic modern lifestyles. We hope to be a little part of your daily escapism.” (Katie & Matt Creators of Cedar)
‘Borrowed Landscape’ seemed a fitting title for our second issue as so many of the gardens and people we visited allowed their locality to form a distinctive signature to their story. We talk to Fergus Garrett, head gardener at Great Dixter, who takes us on a sensory tour of the world famous Sussex garden. We take to the road to uncover hidden gardens in the Scottish Highlands and Inner Hebrides. Join in conversation with River Cottage chef Gill Meller, to discuss his honest approach to food and writing. We discover the story behind the Japanese Garden created in a secluded valley in Cornwall and explore the beautifully time worn gardens of Rousham, an enduring example of the English Landscape Movements. Where the grounds can be enjoyed in much the same way the 18th century visitor would have explored the paths and lingered over the vistas.
