There is still warmth in the soil in September and although days are shortening, most plants are still in active growth. The weather can be excellent, sometimes as good as summer days, and the garden has a wonderful bittersweet quality. Some flowers last from late summer, some only flower now and trees and shrubs inch slowly towards autumn. We have all the tips, advice and ideas for September in KNOW-HOW and WHAT-TO-DO-NOW, over twenty pages.
There are many wonderful plants in the daisy family but James Wickham writes about two daisies of distinction: echinacea and rudbeckia. In GARDEN VISIT, Shirley Lanigan visited the Petrovska woodland garden near Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. In GARDEN HISTORY, Mary Davies tells the story of Wells House and Garden, Co. Wexford and its colourful designer. In DAYS AWAY, Yvonne Gordon has researched a range of gardens to visit and places to stay in September.
In DESIGN DESK, Gabriele Sanio and Shane O'Neill offer a clever and unusual design for a typical suburban back garden.
In NOTEBOOKS Midland and South, Mary Waldron and Brian Cross pass on interesting experiences of their own gardens. Dick Warner writes about ubiquitous nematodes, both damaging and beneficial. In GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE, Paul and Louise Farrelly won €300 worth of plants at Jones Garden Centre, Donabate, Co. Dublin. In PEOPLE, Fionnuala Fallon met garden designer Dominick Murphy.
Barry Liscombe of Hartes in Kildare suggests recipes for Clare island salmon, with chorizo and mussel broth, courgettes, fennel and heritage carrots and Seared scallops, with apple, cucumber and horseradish gazpacho, black pudding, virgin rapeseed oil and Connemara cured pork, and Caroline Byrne selects wines.
