“Spring is always an exciting time in the garden. The sun begins to heat the earth, providing the perfect environment for seeds to germinate and fruit trees to blossom,” writes Editor Michelle McHugh.
Now is the perfect time to plan what to plant and where to plant it. Our Gardening Editor Franco Sessa explains the best ways to plant capsicum, basil and lettuce, shares his top five gardening tools and provides steps to repotting blueberries.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, we have compiled our favourite, easy-to-make dinners, including creamy Tuscan garlic prawns and tender lamb cutlets with artichoke salad and romesco sauce.
There’s plenty for veggie-lovers this season, with leek and mushroom galettes, broad bean and pea balls and asparagus and burrata tart.
We also share clever recipes to turn last night’s leftovers into lunch and feature deliciously-gooey mozzarella dishes.
Our sweet treats are sure to please everyone, with vegan beetroot kisses with dairy-free blackcurrant cream, fudgy vegan brownie and sago and coconut pudding with lychees.
In Wellness, we explore spices to boost brain health, how to spring clean your diet and lifestyle tips for endometriosis.
Head to Cooking School to discover an easy guide to pastry varieties, no-fail vinaigrette combos, powdered vegetables, and how to make fior di latte.
