Welcome to the inaugural issue of Soiled and Seeded, an online zine that expands and excites conventional thinking around gardens. We go well beyond the instructional manual and dig deep to offer a refreshing and engaging take on garden culture.
A lot of ground is covered here, all in the attempt to explore the varied and impassioned collaboration human beings have with the natural world. Plants, and our own varied experience with their absurd abundance always provides for a vivid narrative.
Soiled and Seeded hopes to offer a vibrant venue in which to cultivate and explore garden culture.

Soiled and Seeded introduces the new plant portraiture feature.
Choose any plant. A potted specimen with an exceptionally honorable (or dubious) pedigree, a weedy outcast of city lots, or a purple perennial of cottage gardens. The feature is intended to explore the life and times of all members of The Kingdom Plantae.
Individual plant profiles need not be restricted to anatomical, or physiological distinctions, but certainly may include historical and/or cultural curiosities. In other words, our interest lies not strictly in the number of stamens, but in the stories of adventure, exploration, drama or lore.
Portraits may be up to 500 words. Please include between one to five photos.
