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.

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.
