Top Five Home And Gardening Magazines For Mum

Home is where the heart is. So if your Mum loves styling and taking care of hers, or is a green-fingered Goddess, she will love one of these expert and inspiring magazines - and their abundance of ideas for brightening up her world!

Better Homes and Gardens - It’s Australia’s bestselling, best loved home and garden magazine. Paired with a television show, it's a mecca for all things foodie and DIY to help make life the best it can be. It’s jam-packed with easy-to-make recipes, fantastic renovation ideas and practical step-by-step guides. Informative, friendly and inspiring, this magazine just wants to give your mum a happier life. That’s all. One for the home tinkerer Mum.

Country Style – Elegant, luminous photography is the signature of this beautiful lifestyle magazine. It’s a celebration of Australian country life at its most idyllic. Think flower gardens, cooking with home-grown produce, wide verandas scattered with wicker chairs and daybeds, lunch on the lawn, carefully restored vintage tables, collectable textiles, and more. This mag is filled with good stories about real people, too, on their farms, in their lovely ramshackle homes and creative studios. For the Mum who dreams of a city escape.

Australian Home Beautiful - Here’s an iconic magazine that straddles the divide between aspiration and daily life. AHB offers pages of fabulous decorating and renovating ideas as well as the practical tips and shopping guides to make it happen. If your Mum sees her home as a constant work in progress, she will love reading what’s new for kitchen and bathrooms, the latest design trends and products, or how to create the perfect lunch for friends. It’s like a fashion magazine for both home and family, inspiring her to curate a beautiful space that is both cosy and practical. One for the ‘hostess with the mostess’ Mum.

ABC Gardening Australia - What’s not to love about this Australian classic? Linked to the television show of the same name, it’s bursting with ideas, inspiration and knowledgeable advice from experts in the field. There are seasonal guides, how-to guides (how to plant vegetables, how to edge a garden bed or clip topiary, how to grow herbs or combat weeds), as well as calendar dates to note and recipes from the kitchen garden. Everything her heart could possibly desire to know about Australian gardens and gardening. For the green thumb Mum.

Good Organic Gardener – This is one for the Mum who loves to get her hands dirty and grow her own delicious and nutrient-rich fruit and veg. With an emphasis on productive gardening it is the only magazine that takes you from the soil to the dining table, and provides an abundance of ideas and methods to ensure a year-round bounty of produce. Because Mums only ever want to feed their brood the best of the best, this is for the earth Mama.
