The Garden

December 2014

This month Roy Lancaster describes and recommends a selection of his favourite evergreen garden plants, and RHS Horticultural Advisor Rob Stirling provides suggestions for eye-catching hippeastrums for the home. The latest in the RHS Problem solver series provides useful pointers and tips for gardening in dry shade while restorative garden projects in the industrial city of Detroit in the USA has provided hope in run down areas of the metropolis. Also included in this issue is a bumper books section featuring multiple reviews and recently-published titles as well as other regulars such as the sections, Advice, Wildlife, News and RHS Plants.
