... October/November issue
There is something of ease about the garden in autumn - a sense of fulfilment, of effort rewarded,
and there is no small degree of satisfaction. Crops have been harvested; plants
have flowered and produced their seeds and trees and shrubs are divesting
themselves of their summer garb in a great crescendo of colour. It is a time
for reflection but with one eye on the coming year. We have all the tips, ideas
and suggestions for your garden in autumn in WHAT TO DO NOW and KNOW-HOW.
In PLANT PROFILE, Finola Reid reviews the autumnal beauty
of sorbus, a genus that contains both whitebeam and mountain ash, two of the
very best trees for autumn berries and leaf colour. In PLANT HISTORY, Charles Nelson tells the story of Eugene
Fitzalan in Australia. In GARDEN
VISIT, Rae McIntyre visits James Logan's very unusual Moorish garden in
Portstewart, Co. Derry. In DESIGN DESK, Gabi Sanio offers a clever re-design of
a mature suburban garden of typical size.
In FEATURE: Autumn
colour bonus, Gerry Daly reviews the range of perennial flowers that produce
autumn leaf colour. In NOTEBOOKS, Mary Wladron and Barry Murphy share insights and experiences from their own gardens in the midlands and east. In GARDENING FOR WILDLIFE, Dick
Warner outlines how to share a garden with squirrels. In GARDEN CENTRE
EXPERIENCE, Cora O'Riordan won €300 worth of plants for her rural garden at Dairygold
Co-op Superstores Raheen, Limerick.
