The Garden

October 2017

This month sees a new look for the magazine - its first redesign since September 2011. Our approach of bringing the best in plants, horticulture, gardens, practical advice and news from the RHS and its work has not changed. But we have introduced a less 'busy' design, allowing the images to be seen more clearly and words to sing off the page better.
This month we cover a range of topics including autumn lawncare, stunning new gardens at the historic Trentham estate in Staffordshire, camellias in Japan, an RHS stipa trial, gardening in a changing climate and much more.
