The Garden

November 2018

This month, Ambra Edwards asks if, at the centenary of the end of the First World War, soldiers found gardens as well as homes fit for heroes. Alistair Griffiths looks at easy home growing kits with built-in lighting allowing anyone to raise crops indoors. Phil Clayton reveals the cornucopia nature bestows upon trees and shrubs in autumn and winter, while Paul Debois and Matthew Pottage take a closer look at RHS Garden Wisley’s trees through a monochrome lens. Finally, Melissa Mabbitt finds out from Jennie Humphries what to do about the effects of weather on plants and the remedies that can keep problems at bay.
