Gardening A-Z

These days, garden design seems to be all about simple foliage and clean lines. As much as I admire the contemporary look, sometimes I prefer a bit of wild flower-like personality in my back yard. That’s where the easy-to-grow cosmos comes in to play.

2009 has seen Kiwis don their gumboots and gloves and take to the garden in droves.

Nearly everyone knows someone who has dug out their back lawn, pulled out the pots or called in the carpenter to build the perfect vege garden.
