hello!

There’s no denying this! One of the best things you can do for the people you love every so often–or more often really–is to feed them up, hot and hearty! And a pot of soup simmering on the stove, sending off aromas to thrill their senses is certainly the answer. That’s why we love our soups atBHG because they’re the warmest, cosiest and most welcoming winter food you can offer. And this month our soups (pg 70) are too souper for words! With just an extra touch of excitement here and there, they are souper stars in themselves. We voted to pick a winner but they all scored equal.

make your winter wonderful

You may feel like abandoning the great outdoors as the cold hits hard, but there are brave flowering plants that will replace the gloom with cheerfulness and joy.

WINTER ROSE (HELLEBORUS SPP) When the leaves fall from your trees, it’s time for these winter roses to come into their own and show why they get their name. The delightful bobbing flowers pop up like little umbrellas, as though their job is to protect the fairies at the bottom of your garden.

FOLLOW THE DREAM Garden designer Peter Nixon of Paradisus shows you how you can follow your dreams. His tip is to create and exploit the many microclimates in your garden to change your environment. Five years ago, he moved from his pocket-sized inner Sydney plot to a large block close to the beach on NSW’s Central Coast. It is his ‘Sea Changer’.
