first words from the editor

There’s plenty of colour in this issue, which is perfectly right and fitting for October. Our interiors story Inspired by Autumn (page 40) takes the russets, reds and yellows of the landscape and brings them indoors in decorating schemes and craft projects, while designer Tom Stuart-Smith’s garden (page 132) and that of Poole Cottage in the Wye Valley (page 118) are fabulous examples of how stunning late-summer planting can be. Aside from bringing pleasure, gardens, it has long been recognised, can help heal those suffering from trauma or with mental health issues. So, too, can farming – Michael and Clare Morpurgo’s charity, Farms for City Children, has been proving this for years.

TAKE PART IN WOOL WEEK 2018 Whether we wear it, felt it, knit or crochet it, wool has been important to mankind since the Stone Age, and there’s no fibre to rival it. Unlike the synthetic materials our clothes are increasingly made from today (the production of which is often detrimental to the environment), wool is entirely natural, comes from a renewable source and is biodegradable – releasing nutrients into the ground as it decomposes. This month, the Campaign for Wool, supported by HRH The Prince of Wales, celebrates its ninth annual Wool Week (8-21 October). With events taking place nationwide, its aim is to encourage us to make the most of this natural wonder. Find out more at campaignforwool.org.

The Man Who Climbs Trees (Ebury Publishing, £9.99) As a professional climber, cameraman and adventurer, James Aldred has scaled some of the world’s tallest trees – affording him a unique perspective on the world around him. He recalls breathtaking locations, majestic scenery and life above the forest canopy. The Glorious Life of the Oak (Transworld, £8.99) With roots stretching back thousands of years, the oak is a bastion of our natural world, and has helped to shape society. Our Viking ancestors came here in oak longships, and the ‘wooden walls’ of Nelson’s navy were made from the hardy timber. This book explores how the iconic tree played its part in forming the nation.
