WE LOVE ROSES!
Our 12-page rose special includes an exclusive interview with famous rose breeder David Austin, profiles new rose varieties and gives tips for growing climbing roses. There’s also a guide to caring for roses, from selecting a healthy plant and preparing the site to maintaining your roses that are established.
With a few simple tools and materials you can make your own rustic-style chalkboard. Pop down to your hardware shop, swing by a recycled timber yard and then follow the step-by-step instructions from our DIY expert.
THE GIFT OF GARDENING
Each of us learnt about gardening from different people. We meet a group of people to find out their stories. Three sisters reveal their shared love of gardening and we explore their gorgeous properties. Then, we meet other garden gurus who are planting the seeds of knowledge.
Healthy soil is the holy grail of vegie gardeners but it doesn’t have to mean back-breaking work, digging into the earth. We explain how to create a no-dig garden, one of the quickest and easiest ways to build a garden bed.
GROWING ASIAN GREENS
This group of stir-fry stars are packed with nutrients and are a cinch to grow. They can be grown in pots and, as long as you provide them with at least three hours of sun a day and regular watering, they’ll reward you with a crop in as little as a month.
Create a wildlife habitat at your place by providing plants, food and hiding spots. If you follow our guide, you’ll be spotting butterflies, bees, lizards, frogs, birds and all manner of things everywhere you look in no time at all.
