Organic Gardener March/April 2016 Issue

Purple, yellow, white and good old-fashioned orange – the world of carrots is a flavoursome rainbow. But how do you get them to grow straight?

In our latest issue Justin Russell cracks the code for growing great carrots, the free-range cook, Annabel Langbein, shares her strawberry growing success and a super easy jam recipe. We shine a light on the ‘Big Food’ regulations that are stifling small-scale producers, plus we learn about weed, fruit and mushroom foraging, edible ornamentals, soil supplements, how to make apple cider, and why Peter Cundall is addicted to vegies.

Inside the magazine:
