The Garden

January 2018

This month, Katharine Bradburn, Trainee Horticultural Editor, discovers an organic herb farm that produces natural skincare products using sustainable methods. Caroline Beck learns how the iconic York Gate garden in Leeds deals with increasing visitor numbers without damaging its spirit. Also in this edition, Jon Ardle, Technical Editor for The Garden, talks to Jonathan Webster, Curator at RHS Garden Rosemoor, about the best ways to plant trees and how crucial it is to provide good aftercare, while Graham Rice predicts an upsurge in popularity of Nandina and describes why these elegant evergreen shrubs have great garden appeal. Finally, Philip Clayton, Deputy Editor of The Garden, picks his favourite deciduous and evergreen trees, many of which are superbly ornamental in winter.
