Autumn 2021 Issue 61
Welcome to your Autumn Garden Clinic Journal.
A special greeting to everyone especially the hundreds who’ve joined for the first time during the pandemic. Autumn is the season to relax, plant successfully and smell the roses.
New and experienced gardeners will appreciate native plantsman and organic gardener, Angus Stewart’s helpful advice on composting. Tony Matson again shares his knowledge this time with the top 5 essential tools for gardening.
I can’t help myself with tips from my veggie garden to yours on growing the healthy, superfoods of kale, cauliflowers and broccoli.
My dear Victorian mate, Rick Eckersley, has written an amazing book, ‘Rogue, Art of a Garden’, with incredible images and chances for you to win a copy.
And for our garden travellers, history and romance, while we’re waiting for the borders to open, with Sandra reflecting on her unique 40 year perspective of ‘Floriade’ in the Netherlands and Michael McCoy continues his Gardens of the World sojourn, this time to glorious France.
To help you create the traditional Dutch courtyard vision Sandra shares her favourite bulbs and how to grow your own floral masterpiece in elegant pots.
