About Dana Frigerio

I am a garden designer in northern Italy and, after 8 years of my personal blog, 3 years ago I started Blossom Zine, a bilingual Italian-English quarterly magazine that's all about my love of gardens and flowers. It's digital, sharable (and free!) and filled with beautiful pictures and interesting articles. We have contributors from all over the world and Blossom Zine is now read in more than 90 countries.
