Diggers Festive Gardens 2016 Magazine

In the special Christmas issue:

♦ Clive Blazey on Japanese gardens ... "We have nothing like it in Australia!"

♦ Margaux d’Afflitto takes us on a tour of her family's garden at Castel Ruggero in Italy.

♦ Tim Sansom asks "Did you know Australia is where bird song began?"

♦ Graeme Sait assesses the "safe" glyphosate spin to increase chemical usage.

Plus we meet four of The Digger's Clubs "mad and mighty" gardeners, it's time for the member-only FREE SEED offer, and there's a huge spread of garden gift ideas plus inspiring selections of seasonal plants, bulbs and seeds.
