MAGAZINE PREVIEW

The only English language magazine dedicated to gardening in Iberia.

As usual, this issue is packed with fascinating articles on anything gardening related. Lorraine Cavanagh gives us more on moon plantings; we have the fast-becoming-famous Jo Downs, with her unique style of glass sculptures; a look at problematic leaf and fungal problems; wild and springtime flowers; simple spud growing; and an inspirational article on seafood foraging. That’s on top of all the regular features and information we cram into every edition.
