The summer issue of SALIFE Gardens & Outdoor Living is out now, with top tips for what to do in the garden this season, as well as the best natives for SA, a dive into garden ponds and the secrets of pollination.
SALIFE Gardens & Outdoor Living summer 2020 is out now!
Summer is the season when days of hard work are replaced by days of lazing in the shade, watching the flowers bloom and listening to the birds sing and bees buzz.
This summer, as you’re watching quick little insects dart from flower to flower, stop and think for a moment what they might be doing. The pollination they provide is a vital service for all flowering plants, but just how do they do it? We uncover the secrets of their relationship.
We also have a sneak preview of a special coastal garden. Even though it’s not large in size, this creative space now provides entertainment for all the family – and will be open for Open Gardens SA in early January.
Native plants can be a joy for even inexperienced gardeners to grow, and there are several varieties that are particularly well suited to our harsh SA climate. We seek out the state’s top 10 natives, and discover how to care for them.
There can be few things as relaxing as the sound of gently trickling water in the garden. But what water plants should you choose for your perfect pond? They’re not as high maintenance as you might think.
There’s all this and so much more in the summer 2020 issue of SALIFE Gardens & Outdoor Living, available now at newsagencies and garden centres.
