More from Gardeners’ World magazine

Welcome

We love September • Let us give at least three loud and rousing cheers for September, that most gentle and forgiving of months - definitely a time for loosening the stays and easing off the gardening throttle. Do need to rush around worrying about plants getting too big, seedlings getting devoured or anything like that. Instead, just look back on what you have achieved this year, enjoy the harvest and bask in the last whispers of summer. You all know the story of Goldilocks? Well this month is a bit like baby bear’s porridge – not too hot, not too cold but just about right.

Expert’s choice Zinnias • As long as the roots are undamaged, these colourful daisy-like blooms are easy to grow, says Graham Rice

The Full Monty • On recent visits to Europe, Monty was struck by how crops are grown as a year-round necessity rather than just an entertaining pastime

Have your say • The view from your side of the fence
