Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ)’s monthly gardening e-book suggestion.


The Art & Science of Smart Gardening

This month, instead of a book we’re featuring a magazine. Horticulture is a great source of ideas and information for avid gardeners in need of inspiration. The bi-monthly magazine celebrates all things gardening by shining a spotlight on noteworthy gardeners and gardens, giving useful tips, and providing design advice to make the most of your gardening space.

This magazine and many others are offered to you for free online via BibliMags.
