COLOUR ME HAPPY
Our 12-page special turns the spotlight on how to use different colours in your garden for a great effect. We take a tour of a gorgeous and vibrant garden in the Southern Highlands of NSW and then we’ve got lots of plant ideas for adding a splash of colour to your place.
Most people’s lawns look a bit worse for wear after the summer months. Take advantage of autumn weather to revitalise your patch of green with our handy tips. Plus, find out about the new group of lawn alternatives that are punching above their weight.
COOL TROPICAL FRUIT
If you don’t live in a tropical region of Australia you may think that you can’t grow tropical fruit. However, with the right microclimate and preparation many different fruit not only survives but thrives.
This month we profile the delicate and colourful cut-leaf Japanese maple. Learn how to select the best one for your place and give it the ideal conditions to ensure its success. We’ve also included a snapshot of just a few of the many cultivars.
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.
