Anyone might say that there are too many parenting magazines on the newsagents shelves already and i think you might be right so i bought a copy of the newish magazine new baby to see if it could come up with anything different to stand out from the others!

It didn't exactly pass! inside it looks as if you are reading any old parenting magazine, there are birth stories, cookery, clothes, exercises and diet suggestions and the good old advice pages, i must admit that it is a good magazine but its not the best one and i would probably only buy it again if it had a specific article that i wanted to read and maybe a nice free gift to entice me.

Saying all this though i did like some of the regular features like the Newsbaby, Shopping News and The first thity days (one mums views of her first month with her baby) these were all very good.

So my reccommendation would be to buy it if there is a feature or article that you are interested in if not look around at the many other parenting magazines because one of them is bound to cover what you are looking for.

I agree I only brought a magazine the other week because it had a free "here comes trouble!" t shirt which my son looks cute in, can't remember name or even read it only just quickly looked through

Hear hear, what on earth do we need another one for? I only bother with the ones I have reviewed, although in the first few months I was a sucker for the lot of them. New parents have enough to do and spend their money on without this!

Dahlia 'New Baby' (dahlia tuber)

Dahlia 'New Baby' (dahlia tuber)

Position: full sun Soil: fertile, humus-rich soil Rate of growth: average Flowering ... more

period: July to September Flower colour: Orange
Other features: excellent cut-flowers Hardiness:
half hardy (may need winter protection) This
wonderful dahlia makes a wonderful contrast for
rich plums and purples, but will also settle
effortlessly into a hot-themed border. The
flowerheads shape will help add textural interest
to the border, while their colour, which
intensifies as they mature, will give months of
pleasure. Garden care: Dahlia tubers can be
planted outside after frost, or started off in
pots under glass in late winter to early spring.
Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep,
making sure the 'eyes' are uppermost. Allow enough
room between each tuber so the plants can grow and
spread to their full size without being
over-crowded. While in growth, provide a
high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then
a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to
September. Stake with canes or brushwood if it
becomes necessary. In mild areas, leave them in
situ over winter, but protect the crown with a
generous layer of dry mulch. In colder areas,
carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first
frosts have blackened the foliage and allow them
to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry
tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with
slightly moist potting compost, sand or
vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until
planting out again.

Phormium 'Bronze Baby' (New Zealand flax)

Phormium 'Bronze Baby' (New Zealand flax)

Position: full sun Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average ... more

Flowering period: July Hardiness: frost hardy (may
need winter protection) With their arching,
strappy, sword-shaped leaves, Phormiums make a
dramatic statement in the garden. Originating from
New Zealand, where their fibre has traditionally
been used in the same way as hemp or sisal, they
are versatile evergreen plants that tolerate a
range of conditions and look at home in a variety
of different planting schemes. They have become
increasingly popular in recent years, with more
and more colourful vareities being introduced .
This is a compact variety, with deep purple-bronze
leaves that make dramatic punctuation marks in a
sheltered, sunny patio or courtyard. The dark
leaves are beautifully offset by gravel, too. In
hot summers, a spike of tubular, red flowers will
shoot up from the centre, followed by sturdy
seed-heads. Garden care: Requires minimal pruning.
In late spring remove any dead or damaged leaves
and apply a balanced fertiliser and a mulch of
well-rotted organic matter to stimulate vigorous,
new growth.
