Thank you to FLORXLzine

The team behind FLORXLzine – Carmen Sheridan, Hannah Jones and Emma Brown – have raised £1000 for the Lemon Tree Trust through sales of the print publication.

The first issue of the zine was launched in November 2021 to celebrate plants, gardens and horticulture and the team have gone on to publish two more.

They say: “We want to emulate the safety and sanctuary of a garden within our pages. The mainstream gardening press is often elite and undiverse, FLORXL aims to be the antithesis of this – joyful, and vibrant, creating a platform for stories that aren’t being told, where anyone could feel safe to share and contribute their passion for plants.”

Three FLORXLzine issues are available to order online, together with a Pocket Wildflowers mini-zine.

Our thanks go to Carmen, Hannah and Emma, plus all the contributors and many readers who have all played a part in this beautiful publication and helped to raise funds for Lemon Tree Trust.
