The entire magazine is a celebration of the garden – all year round – with a section dedicated to the charms and challenges of each season, making it the perfect keepsake for garden lovers.

Starting, aptly, in spring, we explore the pretty power of the beautiful peony. Then, Jane Powers, gardening correspondent for the Sunday Times, Ireland, digs?into all things soil with a brilliant, eye-opening piece celebrating its life-giving wonders. We’ve also compiled a greatest-hits collection of some the most gorgeous gardens in the country – perfect for planning weekend roadtrips.

Moving on to summer, Fionnuala Fallon of the Irish Times tells you what to plant now if you want beautiful boquets come summer with her pick of the best annuals for cut flowers.?She also explores the daring, inspiring, colour-filled garden of Jimi Blake (pictured above).

Once autumn hits, it’s all about making the most of nature’s?bounty, and we do that with?a mouth-watering food shoot inspired by the best garden herbs and?those brilliant early-autumn barbecues.

Learn how to press your own flowers with our expert tips, or add some low-maintenace greenery to your home with an easy peasy DIY terrarium tutorial.

And finally, winter is a time for planning and dreaming – and escape. We travel to South Africa and visit?Babylonstoren estate, which was planted to stimulate both appetite and imagination and is packed with inspiring ideas.
