Apart from being the leading gardening bible for many gardeners, Gardening Australia is also one of the best sources of gardening puns and play on words! Issues look at ‘romancing the roses’, 'light BLUB moments' and even ‘seeds of discontent. Whether you have an urban courtyard, veggie patch or country estate every issue has something for you including expert step by step advice across climates, soil and varieties of plants, shrubs flowers you name it. Mum will simply love it if she loves getting outside, planting and potting.
