Inspiring Gardeners in Southern New England Since 1995

Growing plants in or around the Nutmeg State? Connecticut Gardener magazine delivers useful, timely, local advice and encouragement to beginners and old hands alike.


Growing houseplants or doing some container or window box gardening? That makes you a gardener! We believe houseplants are gateway plants, and whether you stick with them or expand your efforts, we’ll be there to help.

Growing and managing a home garden can be overwhelming, but take heart! The old saying, “if you’re not killing plants, you’re not a gardener,” is spot on. Gardening is a lifelong journey, and there are always more plants to buy and experiment with!


Connecticut Gardener has plenty in store for you to discover, because creative, inquisitive gardeners like you never stop learning!
