15 Handmade Garden Projects + Ideas

By poppytalk |

There’s a new garden book out that I’d love to get by Seattle-based freelance garden writer, author, blogger, Lorene Edwards Forkner called Handmade Garden Projects (Timber Press). By reading one of it’s reviews by local garden blogger, Andrea Bellamy of Heavy Petal (such a great name for a garden blog), it looks like the perfect book for the DIY’er (especially one who enjoys gardening).  Projects such as a succulent gutter planter to a gabion-style coffee table; the ideas behind the how-to book seem obtainable yet unique. It inspired me to look for a few handmade garden projects myself.  Click “continue” to see what I found.

    Like my parents used to always say “Go outside, it’s a nice day!” Thanks for the kind words about Handmade Garden Projects. Dig in and have some fun!

    I just tumbled over this article and it seemed to me like exactly what I want; I was in search of a DIY garden book. I did try it out on Amazon but it said, the book is out of stock. Would you be able to tell me if there is any other retailer that would be able to deliver this book to me? Also, FYI, I am a resident of UK and would need the book to be shipped to the UK. Your help would be much appreciated

    Hi Peter -

    I have sent along your query to the publisher. Hopefully we’ll hear from them soon.

    Hi Peter!

    Amazon UK should be back in stock soon, but in the meantime, you can order from Timber Press UK.

    Hope this helps!
