So pleased the cover pic shows a bee.

what would or could we do without bees?  Forget brexit, bring on the bees!

    Let's hope brexit leaves us with sufficient protection for bees. Our government and the NFU have been notorious for promoting anti-bee policies. If it wasn't for European laws we would still be using neonicotinoid pesticides liberally and legally.

    Sorry, @seakale but what "calendar" are you talking about?

    The gardener's world magazine december issue arrived today complete with a free calendar, if you could find it amongst all the junk mail they cram into the packaging now...

    The first job here is to put the loose stuff straight into recycling ... then make a coffee and sit down to browse ..

    Thanks, @wild edges and @Busy-Lizzie ! Probably some people on this forum don't realize that there are a number of members (like myself) who do not subscribe to the magazine. ;)

    Is it even possible to subscribe to the magazine if you live abroad.  I used to buy it every month but then moved to Slovakia.

    Yes, I live in France. The subscription is a bit more expensive to cover the postage cost.

    I used to live in Belgium where there is a sizable British community associated with the EU, NATO and all the international firms with offices and factories there.  That meant I could buy GW each month with all the freebies - seeds usually - for the same mark-up price I initially paid to subscribe to the magazine by post when we moved but was then frustrated not to get the freebies.
