Garden Hub
These are the pages that will keep you up to date with what is happening in the gardening world: garden events, gardens to visit, new books to read, photo inspiration from your own gardens, ideas and more ideas.

Plant Pests
Some introduced plants so enjoy our climate and soils that they rapidly begin to spread, swamping more desirable plants and, in particular, indigenous species.

Plant PestsWe've all brought home a 'lovely little plant' only to find it trying to take over the garden! encourage you to learn which plants have been declared pests and to garden responsibly.
See the special review on climbing plants that have proved their potential to smother more desirable and native vegetation and bush.


Madoo, Long Island NY, USA
Madoo, Long Island NY, USACreated over 40 years by the painter Robert Dash, Madoo is a uniquely personal expression. The planting is especially skilled, as plants must be tough to survive and Dash has selected those that flourish. There are no clichés here, although many elements have been copied and used in gardens elsewhere.

Book Reviews

Succulents for the Contemporary Garden
Succulents for the Contemporary Garden Don't be fooled by the title into thinking this is a design book. It isn't, but this is the book that will take you beyond 'the red one', as author Yvonne Cave so succinctly puts it.
