Hailing from the UK, Bloom is an independent print magazine for gardeners, plant admirers, nature lovers and outdoor adventurers.
It looks beautiful and it works hard; it makes you muse on the handsomeness of nature and it inspires you to get out there and be a part of it.
Published seasonally in spring, summer and autumn, each issue of Bloom is packed with practical gardening advice, an exploration of the natural world and a celebration of all green spaces, whether they’re in the countryside or the middle of the city, groomed or utterly wild.
The Old Yew is thrilled to be one of Bloom's only brick & mortar stockists in the USA.
