Edited by Caroline Harbouri, The Mediterranean Garden is a journal by and for members of the Mediterranean Garden Society. Expressing their knowledge, experience and sometimes failures, members from all over the world send Caroline articles within the broad subject of mediterranean plants and gardens. She also welcomes book reviews, sundries and letters to the editor. Although the MGS now has an internet Forum for direct discussion of mediterranean plants and gardening, TMG continues to be the chief means of disseminating knowledge among members. Many fine artists from among our members illustrate the articles with line drawings which make the journal so distinctive.

is a quarterly journal issued in January, April, July and October.

Back issues are available from the Secretary at 8 Euros per copy including postage.

You can consult a complete index, by subject, of all volumes of TMG that have been published so far.

A full list of Journal back issues and their contents can be found in the (non-responsive) MGS Archive.
