Our first issue of the year is full of prudent and invaluable gardening advice, suggestions and ideas allowing you to embrace this beautiful time of the year with confidence, motivation and a smile. While all the hectic flowering and activity of summer might be over, now really is a wonderful time to start wising up to an array of important gardening activities and to prepare garden beds so they’re ready for the cooler months.
From mulching, fertilising, lawn care to visualising your spring garden with bulb plantings, the best plants to choose and of course all the essentials for attracting birdlife to your garden. Your secateurs, shears, rakes and spades are going to get a real workout. It’s a great time to grow your own vegetables and GardenShop offers you a terrific selection of seeds and varieties to set you on the path to self-sufficiency.
In this issue we provide you with all the information you need to know about sowing your own vegetable seeds. We also explore Eastern gardening, its décor influences and plant choice – from beautiful bonsai to the calm, gentle aura of Gardenias and bamboos. Plus there’s GardenShop’s gorgeous range of exclusively imported pots and ornaments inspired by the magic of the East! And of course, there’s no shortage of ideas for wise gardeners to discover superb ways to creatively use indoor plants in and with glassware. Be Garden Wise
