THE ONLY WAY IS UP
With space being at a premium in urban areas, vertical gardens are becoming more and more popular. John Patrick extols their virtues and explains the key elements to consider to make sure yours is a success.
This ever-popular climber is a great way to utilise space on a sunny backyard fence. Jerry Coleby-Williams explains which varieties are best and how to give them the conditions they love. We’ve also included answers to some common questions.
This month, we profile the bright and beautiful zinnia flower. They’re easy to grow from seed but we give you some insider tips to make sure they’re happy in your garden. We also share some of our favourite varieties.
