Home Living : September 13th 2011
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 1 » ADVERTISING FEATURE Garden legend Next year marks the 125th anniversary of Yates in Australia. In 1887, when Arthur Yates opened his shop in Sussex St, Sydney, he had no idea he was starting a brand that would become such an icon in Australian gardening. When he wrote the first Yates Garden Guide in 1895, he would have been equally astonished to be told that this book would still be in existence more than 115 years later. This spring the latest, 43rd edition of Yates Garden Guide will be released, continuing one of the greatest traditions in Australian publishing. Yates Garden Guide is a living book that, like all living things, has been able to adapt, grow and change with the times. And this new edition is a special celebration of the Yates heritage and of its ongoing place in the Australian way of life. This anniversary edition includes a pictorial history of Yates and a chapter on the evolution of garden design in Australia. With basic gardening information, new problem-solving charts, chapters on establishing a range of garden styles and those endlessly popular, how-to-sow-and- grow tables for flowers and vegetables, this is a must-have read for all green hands. Details: Yates Garden Guide (43rd edition) is published by HarperCollins. Details: www.yates.com.au HOMELIVING Spring into action JANITA SINGH Spring is a busy season for gardeners. New leaves and fresh blooms announce the arrival of spring but before you settle back to enjoy the warmer weather, there are a few things to take care of. Authors of Paper Flow, MaryAnne Bennie and Brigitte Hinneberg, suggest setting a time limit to complete any unwanted tasks around the house and garden. Armed with a stopwatch and the right cleaning equipment, Bennie and Hinneberg say every room in the home can be tackled in no time at all, ready for any spring event. Once done inside, look outside and see how you can improve your outdoor living areas. Spring is probably the busiest and happiest season for the garden. Plants are waking up, flowers are ready to bloom and everything comes alive. Clean up your garden, remove dead growth and plant seasonal flowers and vegetables. Think of ways to add more colour -- paint a feature garden wall or bring in colourful decorative pots. Attract birds with a bird feeder or a water bath. A water feature also adds more life to your surroundings. After all, spring brings more sun, smiles and happy times and you need to be ready to embrace it. 2340657 13/9 15 PARRAMATTA RD HABERFIELD 9716 1100 342 CANTERBURY RD HURLSTONE PARK 9716 9866 296 LYONS RD FIVE DOCK 9712 2333 126 BATT ST PENRITH 4721 7241 FREE HOLIDAY InStyle Furniture 6-8 Wingate Rd.
