Inside this Issue

The November issue is on sale Monday October 13

This month’s plant of the month is lavender, a fragrant beauty that works well in many gardens and has a number of uses, from aiding sleep to relieving headaches. We share growing advice and explain the features of the various types.

If you love heady aromas in the garden, it pays to think beyond flowers. The leaves of many plants are imbued with scents that just need to be crushed or brushed past to drift into the air. We give a rundown of the some of the best ones to use.

Pruning is all part of garden maintenance and done at the right time in the correct way it can really revitalise your garden. Our guide explains the different tasks, such as tip-pruning and deadheading. And before you get your secateurs out, see our section on when to prune.

It’s become the in thing for cafes to garnish food with edible blooms and there are plenty of reasons to grow flowers for your plate at home. We have lots of great ideas for what to grow and how to use them in the kitchen.

If you live in a frost-free location, now is the perfect time to plant a mango tree. Since it takes a few years to produce, use store-bought mangoes to whip up one of our innovative dishes, such as the to-die-for dessert, mangomisu.

From a lyrebird that can mimic a chainsaw (click here to see it in action), to a hoverfly that looks like a wasp or a stick insect that looks like a twig, the natural world is full of masters of disguise. We explore why they do it and find out some quirky techniques.

Up for grabs is one of 5 Koshi wind chimes worth $65 each; Ivory Coat dog food valued at $230; and a Birdies pack, valued at $220. For more details, see pages 11, 71 and 80 (respectively) of the November issue. For full Terms & Conditions for ABC Gardening Australia magazine promotions, click here
