DAME NELLIE’S ESTATE
Take a peek behind the gates of the historic garden of the late opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, in the Yarra Valley in Victoria. Learn how the original garden, created by William Robert Guilfoyle, has been lovingly restored in recent years.
A hedge is a great way to delineate rooms in your garden without the need for a fence. And, if you plant something that also supplies you with food for your table, you extend its use even further. Check out our growing advice and ideas.
NO MORE SNEEZES
If you suffer from allergies, you’re probably familiar with how an afternoon in the garden can leave you sneezing and itching. Our article explains how to create an allergy-free garden by being smart about plant selection and taking care outside.
COOKING WITH GREEN BEANS
