Set up your garden for all seasons
Get a fire pit for cool nights (Charlie’s dry stone pit was in his winning entry at the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show) and shade from a wisteria-covered gazebo. Imagine it in spring ...
Grow blooms to cut for indoors
Hydrangeas happily bloom all summer if you plant them for morning sun. Then, on the weekends, just cut a few of the beautiful bouquets for a vase– it’s hardly a chore!

Why have one hedge when you can have two – or three. Trimming all at the same time turns three jobs into one. The majestic liquid amber needs little care but gives much love in return, especially in autumn when the leaves put on a top show.
Pretty up with easy-care flowering trees
Crepe myrtles are hardy and trouble-free in most parts of Australia and they reward you with tiny flowers that congregate as a bunch powerful enough to pack a punch!
Landscape with agapanthus
Rows of agapanthus are favourites with landscape designers because they’re easy to grow and look stunning when the elegant, tall flower stems emerge.
