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.
