A physician by trade, botanic enthusiast, and accidental inventor, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward devised the first terrarium in 1829, and thereby launched a new age of horticultural possibilities—where ferns and mosses would grow indoors, and tropical exotics would travel the world.
If you grow ferns indoors or live near some amazing ones outdoors, we may want to feature them in an upcoming story in Garden Design. Send your photos, including cell phone shots, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The re-imagined Garden Design Magazine employs compelling photography, captivating stories, and a striking design. Beloved and collected by avid readers for 32 years, the magazine, which will print quarterly, has a fresh aesthetic, more pages and is advertisement-free, making it more akin to a “book-azine.”
