This month, Emma Allen presents a personal selection of choice, summer-flowering trees, and how to go about planting them now. Melissa Mabbitt talks to Craig Woodhouse about where and how to plant bulbs for spring.
Naomi Schillinger discovers a small private London courtyard that proves almost any outdoor space has the potential to be transformed, and we look at how home gardeners can help provide for hedgehogs year-round. Finally, Lia Leendertz asks why councils rush to replace old trees rather than extend their lives.
This month also sees the launch of a brand new RHS podcast, a peek behind the scenes of the magazine, with exclusive interviews, gardening advice and more - see rhs.org.uk/thegardenpodcast.
