Recent flooding has reinforced to many of us that mother nature will continue to be unpredictable. With that in mind, gardening can create challenges in terms of what to plant, when to plant and how to garden. Luckily magazines are here to help, as
well as events such as the upcoming Ipswich Plant Expo on 3rd March.

This event has great speakers booked and at only $5 entry, is a must for any novice gardener or keen plant collector. More about this event can be found out on its own website

Paul Plant Editor of subTropical Gardening magazine

This issue is all about collectors! Why do people collect plants and what do they look for when buying collectable plants. Arno King checks out Polyscias, Jill Coomb evaluates what a good plant buy is, Helen Curran looks at where to buy plants in Sydney and all our other contributors do a smashing job at bringing you the best advice for helping your garden grow.

A special thanks to all the readers, who have sent in emails, letters and phone calls congratulating our magazine for taking out the pinnacle award for horticulture – 2011 Award of Merit for Excellence in Horticultural Media. We are deeply moved by your comments.

Finally don't forget to join us on Facebook and also in the STG Community of our website –
