Email your letters and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. au. We’d love to hear what you think of Pip and if you’ve embarked on any projects as a result of our articles. Each issue, one published entrant will receive a limited edition Pip Magazine art print, printed with archival inks on beautifully textured archival 300 gsm rag paper.
I was lucky enough to discover you through a friend, after she received a subscription to Pip Magazine for a Christmas present. Although initially jealous (she wasn’t much of a gardener), it has been miraculous to watch her transformation. Now she’s the keeper of flourishing beehives.
The article I want to express my gratitude for is A bountiful garden all year round (issue 15), particularly succession planting and stacking in time. Although aware of the idea of these principles, I always thought they belonged more in an orchard setting.
But thanks to the article I’ve had my eureka moment and now, instead of waiting for precious garden real estate to become available while my seedlings outgrow their trays, I will nestle them in under the bigger guys ready to complete their lifecycle. This helps give them protection from the harsh summer sun and prevents the soil washing out after storms, or from an enthusiastic threeyear- old child wielding a hose.
I’m very inspired to push on through the summer months and my New Year’s resolution is for a garden calendar and journal! Thank you!
And another thanks for the always beautiful colouring-in picture. My boy and I used to always fight over who got to colour, now we photocopy it and both share the joy.
