"Your favourite horticulture monthly."
—Slogan on the cover.[src]

Hadrian's Wall was a British Muggle monthly horticulture magazine. Mr. and Mrs. Granger were, apparently, subscribers, as they had at least an issue of this magazine in their sitting room in 1997. It cost £1.75.[1]

That very issue advertised the following content on its cover:[1]

  • "With this special summer issue win a stunning garden trug from Rosemary'sGarden.com"
  • "Free seed with every new subscription!"
  • "Devon Heaven: "My Elysian Fields" - Top Holticulturist Rosemary Ames lets us into her Eden"
  • "Foul Play: How to protect your feathered friends from the foxes"
  • "Floral Harmony: Healing with nature"
  • "Casting Nasturtiums: Discover the perfect climbing partner for your vegetable patch!"

Behind the scenes

  • Hadrian's Wall was a defensive fortification in Roman Britain, begun in AD 122, during the rule of emperor Hadrian. The magazine may have also been named after Hadrian Whittle, a British garden designer who has worked with Filmscapes,[2] a company which did landscaping work for the first five Harry Potter films.
