green fingers at the ready

After the wonderfully warm blast of ‘fake’ spring we’ve recently experienced, I found myself spending more time in the garden again. And, thanks to the unusual weather, our small-but-perfectly-formed outdoor space has now had an unexpected tidy up two months before I would normally have considered putting a foot in the garden. So with all things green-fingered in mind, I’d like to introduce you to our new title, Easy Gardens, below. It’s perfect for the novice or the more experienced gardener and is full of quick tips and ideas. It’s on sale now at all good retailers for £3.99. I’ve got my copy and can recommend it! It’s a must-try! Don’t miss our new title Easy Gardens that comes complete with a free hydrangea plant for every reader, too. We can help! Want to…

come on inside!

Look what I made Here’s how I recycle plastic bottles and spoons – I think it’s pretty clever! Rosmarie Bigler, Switzerland Finding the positive When my partner and I travelled to Paris on Eurostar recently, the train had a fault and was redirected back to London. We were put up in a hotel overnight and the next day got an upgrade, so we had a lovely lunch on board, which really cheered us up! Annabel Bridgewater, Dorset Long-lasting memories I’m recently home from Australia and New Zealand, celebr ating my 70th birthday and golden wedding anni versary. Not only was it an incredible double celebration, I also met up with friends I’d not seen for over 40 years. Marie, in Australia, moved there when we completed our nurse tr aining. She had three daughters, and I had three sons! After…

in the garden this week

✿ MAKE NEW FLOWERBEDS FOR FREE by digging up and splitting herbaceous perennials into portions that can be replanted to increase your displays. Bugle (ajuga) and dead nettles (lamium) produce individual plantlets which can be teased out and planted on. ✿ HEDGEHOGS WILL TRAVEL up to one mile each night through parks and gardens in a quest to find food or a mate. If you have an enclosed garden, create a hedgehog highway by making holes in or under fences – 13x13cm is sufficient for a hedgehog to pass through. ✿ FEED ROSE BUSHES with a specialist fertiliser. And start spraying any plants that were affected by diseases last summer with a fungicide. It will help to prevent problems like black spot and mildew from taking hold again.…

what you’re wearing

Susan Watkins, 58 Tell us about your look… Colour gives me a lift, whereas black can have the opposite effect. I bought my coat in Primark last year. It’s a real tomato red. I’ve also got a coat in bright pink, and I alternate between the two. Both my shirt and jeans are Zara. I love shopping there. My suede ankle boots are M&S, my tortoiseshell earrings are Accessorize and my sequin basket is River Island. And the best bit of your body? My shoulders – I love Bardot tops. You wore it well Ann Jackaman, 1978 I was 26 years old in this photo, taken in Thailand. I was wearing a long chiffon embroidered blouse with large bell-bottom trousers. My glasses were massive but very fashionable then. How times have changed! We’d love to see how great…
