Founded by Wheeler in 1987, “HORTUS is a privately published quarterly journal which addresses itself to intelligent and lively-minded gardeners throughout the English-speaking world. The beautifully printed and bound issues, each of 112 pages, contain articles on gardens, plants, people and books; history design and ornament. There are conversations with the great figures of present-day horticulture, essays, notes and thorough reviews of new and reissued books.”
