Note From The Editor Zone Magazine has been a nagging wish in the back of my head for some time. It seemed that our areas (Crowborough, Uckfield and Heathfield) don’t really have a fun, vibrant lifestyle magazine. Something that is stylish, but not pretentious. An approachable publication for the people of our area. On that note, we are very keen to be involved in community matters and events and we are keen to encourage people to contact us with any news that may affect local people. Having a background of graphic design and photography and having previously worked in publishing, it seemed I was half way there anyway - so decided to produce Zone Magazine. Some people ask why I decided to produce the magazine as an e-magazine (pdf download) and not produce it in print. Well, to produce a magazine as a download cuts out some costs, which we can pass directly on to our advertisers. But we are keen to hear what you think about this format, you can do that via our comments system on the website. Being produced as a download means that it is always available 24/7 and as we grow and produce more issues, these will be available to you from the website, as by way of an archive so if you missed an article or recipe, you can just go back and download again. I’m very passionate about this magazine and believe that the production should be no lesser quality than that of a printed one. Enjoy! Andy Newson

INFORMATION This magazine is a PDF. Great, but what is a PDF? PDF stands for Portable Document Format and is a file that can be viewed easily with either a Mac or a PC. How is best to view this magazine? Some web browsers are configured to open PDFs within the browser. This is not really the best way to view this magazine as it may slow your PC down. Really you need to change your preferences to download the file as opposed to opening it in the browser window. Downloads take just a couple of minutes and then you are free to view the magazine without even being on the internet. The most common way to view a PDF is with Adobe Acrobat Reader, most computers already have this software, but if by some freak of nature, you don’t - you can download and install it free of charge from here. Then simply download the latest issue from the website to a safe place on your PC. Perhaps create a folder on your documents called ‘Magazines’. Another way to view the magazine is with another piece of software form Adobe, called Digital Editions. This is also free and is a nice way of viewing e-magazines and e-books. You can create a virtual bookshelf and always know where all your books and mags are. How to use the interactivity of the magazine. The magazine has certain features that you might not know about... such as ‘zooming’. Where available, smaller text articles can be clicked to enlarge the view to make it easier to read. This same function can be done from the menu, but we’re just trying to make things even easier for you.

When we provide offers and vouchers, on most you will be able to click them to open them in a browser window so that it’s really easy for you to print them to take them to the shop.

MUSIC HOT NEW MUSIC AND CLASSIC ALBUMS (Featured Album)

WE STARTED NOTHING £7.95


C ZONE JUN.08 The Ting Tings We Started Nothing “We Started Nothing” is the debut album from pop/indie/electronic band The Ting Tings, made up of Jules De Martino and Katie White. The duo teased and tantalised the music world during the latter months of 2007 by releasing extremely limited singles and playing very few headline shows. The Ting Tings were tipped by the BBC as the “sound of 2008” and whilst mixing pop and indie without diluting the power of either is no mean feat, this album succeeds in spectacular style. It’s without a doubt an intriguing debut and establishes the bands’ sound, with each song embedding itself into your subconscious with snappy choruses, powerful guitar work and unforgettable drumming. You will probably have been living in another world if you have failed to have heard the single “Great DJ” which also kicks off the album – instantly recognisable with its driving drum beat, choppy guitar and unforgettable chorus. Another track to

have hit the air-waves lately is the equally as catchy “That’s Not My Name”, raw with Katie’s frustration with record companies and boys forgetting what she is called. Other tracks you may have already heard and WILL hear very soon if you haven’t already, include “Fruit Machine” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go”, as there’s no denying that The Ting Tings are taking over the UK air-waves.

7

Comparisons in the press have likened The Ting Tings to The Gossip, Blondie, Girls Aloud and even Toni Basil of 1980s pop hit “Hey Mickey”. Their reputation rocketed in summer 2007 when Steve Lamacq introduced them on a small stage at Glastonbury as “the next big thing”, and their performance made it onto BBC Two.

This album really is a real rollercoaster mash up of energy, anger and pure pop arousal. Be prepared!

Usher Here I Stand

Sandi Thom The Pink and the Lily

“Here I Stand” is American R&B entertainer Usher’s 5th album and the follow up to the 9 times Platinum selling “Confessions”. Featuring the top 5 hit single “Love In This Club”, with more hits expected to follow from this latest offering.

Sandi Thom first came to the world’s attention by webcasting gigs from her basement flat in Tooting. Now, she returns with this magnificent 13 track follow up to her number one album “Smile… It Confuses People”.

The album release was pushed forward due to what his label claims was an “increasing global demand”. Songs on the album have been recorded with the likes of Jermaine Dupri, T-Pain, Dre & Vidal and Polow da Don. With a mixture of club tracks and ballads, each of the 19 tracks will appeal to old and new Usher fans alike. Look out for “Love in This Club, Part II”, the album’s second single, featuring Beyonce. This album is without a doubt, a must buy for all R&B fans all over the world.

£8.95

“The Pink and the Lily” sees her with a new set of songs that she says represent her wider musical tastes, including Fleetwood Mac and country influences. Thom sings about the golden age of movies, looks back at her childhood and has also included one of her most personal songs to date, the country-soul ballad “Wounded Heart” – a tribute to her boyfriend and collaborator Jake Field. Although the album contains some interesting new sounds, they still retain the same raw, emotional direct feel from her debut.

£7.95


Futureheads This Is Not the World

Pigeon Detectives Emergency

Fresh off the back of the smash hit singles “Radio Heart” and “The Beginnings of the Twist”, post-punk revivalists The Futureheads are back with what is sure to be one of the albums of 2008.

“Emergency” is the follow up to the Pigeon Detectives’ top 3 debut album “Wait For Me”, which sold over 300,000 copies in the UK going Platinum.

After disappointing sales of their last album “News and Tributes”, the band set up their own label Nul Records after being dropped by their previous label 679 Recordings in 2006. “This Is Not the World” is set to be the strongest album of their career and each track is as guitar-driven and indie-filled as the last. If you find yourself singing along to “The Beginnings of the Twist” every time you hear it on the radio, the album will not disappoint. “This Is Not the World” is bold, brash and everything you would expect from a band whose influences come from the likes of Kate Bush, The Jam, Devo and Fugazi.

Produced by Stephen Street, “Emergency” sees the band take on a more grown up and polished sound without breaking away too much from tunes that made them the biggest selling debut act on an independent label in 2007. While they may not be the most lyrically technical or musically talented band on the planet, there’s no denying their anthemic indie tunes, unquestionably appealing to the masses. The Pigeon Detectives are back – and they are catchier than ever.

The Smiths The World Won’t Listen £4.39

10

“The World Won’t Listen” is a compilation album by English rock band The Smiths. It was released in February 1987 and reached #2 on the UK album chart. The Smiths were the definitive British indie rock band of the ‘80s, marking the end of synth-driven new wave and the beginning of the guitar rock that dominated English rock into the ‘90s. Upon its original release, the album was more commercially orientated and for the casual listener, it was another mixture of previously released tracks in session combined with some new ones similar to “Hatful of Hollow”. The title reflects Morrissey’s frustration

with that fact that the mainstream, radio and record buyers still weren’t paying attention. As the album includes many non-album cuts and single versions, it still remains as a firm fan favourite. The album has many moods from the suicide note of “Asleep” to the joyful defiance of “Panic”, to the abrasiveness of “London”. This album remains as the best introduction to the music of The Smiths that anyone is likely to find and it is much better value for money than the endless, alternate “best of” collections currently available.

Crazy Golf is a brilliant game, the only downer is having to play it in the grey drizzle and peeling paint environment of your typical run down British sea-side resort. Well thanks to MyMinigolf you can free yourselves from feeling like you’re stuck in a town in the 1950’s and play anywhere you like, whether it be the garden, the living room or in scuba gear at the bottom of the pool (why?). The kit contains a 9 hole mini golf course with 13 funky obstacles, two steel clubs, 4 balls, a scorecard and a large holdall for carrying/storing it all. With a loop, spiral, bridge and various other silly obstacles you can play to your hearts content, without being assaulted by the smell of cockles and letting the whines of spotty kids put you off that all important shot.

RC Jump Jet £69.95

Guitar Rockstar £14.99 We know there’s nothing more embarrassing than Dad rock but this air guitar is guaranteed to bring a few laughs to any family gathering. Whether it’s at your Dad’s expense or yours we can’t be sure. The Air Guitar allows Dad to rock out to his favourite tunes – be sure to have the video camera ready.

We’re pretty sure that this is the very first indoor VTOL Jump Jet ever to hit the market, and it was well worth the wait. It takes off like a helicopter and flies like a plane, using four gyroscopically controlled rotors and a not an inconsiderable amount of flying skill. The swept back wafer thin wings and tail help to control the stability of forward flight, and the multi-directional control allows you to fly in any direction you can think of, and often a few you hadn’t expected. To keep it light and balanced, the bodywork has been stripped to a minimum, and a twenty minute charge should give you a good ten minutes of the best indoor flying experience you’ve ever had.

Zero Gravity Micro £29.99 We all know that Dads are just big kids at heart so if your Dad’s a bit generationally challenged, a new remote controlled toy will make this year’s Father’s Day. This little RC device will drive Dad to new heights, literally. Whilst it might look like any other remote control car the super-charged vehicle will climb walls as well as ceilings.

“Croatia warm

16

I

n the last 15 years, the face of Europe has changed. Countries that were once part of larger empires are emerging in their own right and one of these jewels is Croatia. Formerly part of Yugoslavia, Croatia is a country that warms every sense, from the sound of the sea quietly lapping against the coastline, the scent of the lavender that grows wildly, the taste of the locally produced wines, the sights of red roof

tiles against turquoise blue waters and cypress trees and the feel of the warm sun as you meander through the historic towns and villages. Only a two and half hour flight from London, Dubrovnik and Split are both ideal as short breaks or an introduction when extending your holiday into the rivieras of Makarska, Kvarner and Istria, offering quiet resorts or something livelier for those who want more. The coastline is fractured with over 1100 islands of which very few are inhabited

but make a great diversion to explore and especially to snorkel/dive – Brac, Korcula and Hvar being some of the largest and easily accessible, perfect for a two centre holiday. The best way to explore Croatia is to hire a car, which is safe and very easy. The coastal roads offer dramatic views with many stops along the way to take some memorable photographs. So if you have exhausted Greece,Spain and Italy, try Croatia before everyone else does.

FILM By Graham Thomas

Glengarry Glen Ross

Brilliantly written by David Mamet, and adapted from his play of the same name, Glengarry transports us to the competitive world of American real estate and a sales force so backstabbing that Brutus would blush. This film is gripping, not least because of its stellar cast, Kevin Spacey, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin. Baldwin has never been better in his brief cameo as the team’s ruthless troubleshooter, but it’s the veteran Lemmon who steals the show. His character is desperate to the point of tragic and is so memorable that it spawned a character on The Simpsons. Times are tough and so are the targets – top salesman gets a car, bottom one gets the bullet! The film pulls no punches and drags you in to its claustrophobic feel. Hopefully this will make you feel good about your own lot in life. Most places have this for less than four pounds.

So you’re fed up with the tv, another ‘I love 1989’ and ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Joseph!’ Well why not take a break from all that and invest some of your hard earned on some truly classic movies. I’d like to draw your attention to a few great DVDs that may have previously slipped your radar, and can be picked up for half the price you might spend on your first round at the pub.

Complete Alfred Hitchcock (15 DVD box set)

OK, this is a bit of a cheat. With 14 films included at least a couple are bound to be decent. Well, you can up the expectations a bit there. Every one of these oozes class, despite the gap in budget between some of them. Hitchcock really was a genius and frighteningly ahead of his time. My only problem with this collection is that it is nothing like the ‘complete’ collection of his work. It covers a good spread of his American films, including his 1956 Hollywood version of The Man Who Knew Too Much (that he first made in 1934), but there are many missing even from that catalogue – most notably North By Northwest. What you do have here though is well over 20 hours of master story telling and five of IMDB. com’s top 250 films of all time (including 3 of the top 40). Once over £100 you can now get hold of this for £25, both online and in stores.

Before Sunrise/Before Sunset

No, this is not some sprawling epic with pretentious punctuation in its title; it’s actually two separate films made ten years apart. In 1994 Richard Linklater wrote and directed the first installment, the story of a young man and woman who meet on a train and spend the day together exploring Vienna and falling in love (not just with the city!). It’s an impossibly romantic tale, yet is not in the slightest bit cheesy. The attraction between the leads (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) is palpable and, above all, their story is believable.

Ten years later Linklater united Hawke and Delpy again. Whilst the first is a touching film in its own right, this second chapter cements the two as a truly beautiful piece of cinema. This time the backdrop is Paris, but the script still crackles along and the performances don’t wane. The couple have not seen one another since Vienna and the years have changed them – do they realise the powerful influence they each had on the other’s outlook to life, even in that brief encounter? You can pick this up from a certain online retailer that sounds a bit like a river (other outlets are available!) for under a fiver. Cynics beware though. This is a glass half full film. ■

Artist statements: Lou McGill Lou McGill has been taking photographs for over 25 years and works with a mixture of film and digital formats. She was born, and currently lives, in Glasgow, Scotland. Lou has been developing a series of images of modern architecture around the River Clyde to reflect the industrial past of the city. By adding layers and depth to the images she aims to evoke a sense of the future and the past at the same time. The visual inspiration, and title for the series, comes from the silent film Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang in 1927. Mariah Skellorn The ‘Convenience Food’ project is a response to our current methods of acquiring food, and its increasing lack of sustainability. Scientist have been experimenting with cloning and genetic modification of many foods in order to further intensify the productivity of farming. Growing combinations of food on the same tree is an imaginary solution to the lack of farm land that we may experience in the future. These images may seem comical but if we continue our current consumer habits these trees could become closer to reality. Lydia Polzer The German re-unification was a unique historical event. I feel extremely privileged to have witnessed first hand the peaceful revolution, which brought down the Iron Curtain. These images are part of a personal journey with the aim to understand a country that from one moment to the next had ceased to exist and yet lives on in my memory. My pictures are documenting a moment in history, which is already in the past and all evidence of which is disappearing fast. And yet past, present and potential futures of each specific location come together in each image. Ian Brown My engagement with the land or landscape started at a fairly early age. During my time at art school the idea of walking in the land and recording the activity took shape. I made a walk around three tumuli in Norfolk in 1981 recording the walk with a camera and presenting the piece as postcard size photos in linear strip. I began to work with computers and photography in the late 1990’s and realised that I could, with the aid of this modern technology, present these walks as a single image. This has allowed me to re-engage with the land and record aspects of my travels through it.

Looking at the road ahead of you is literally looking at the future glimpsed through the solid concrete frame of a generic motorway bridge. Equally seductive is the journey’s potential for excitement and change. It distracts us from the mundane real life that waits round nearly every corner. It may be false promise but every journey offers at least the welcome possibility of renewal, adventure, or even calamity. A new road. An unknown, better future.

Mike Shepherd Over the past four years I have been working with two main personal themes based on my experience of loving the elements, the great outdoors and English landscape: The ‘spirit of landscape’, and ‘a feeling of wilderness’. I find particular hidden pockets of peaceful, semi-remote landscape in Cumbria and Scotland as inspiring subject matter. Aesthetically I aim to achieve a clear description of natural

design and elemental simplicity in the landscape; hence images are intended to be simple, elemental, and communicative, working with the space in the composition as much as the subject matter. Marc Christmas Marc is currently working on a number of projects exploring themes around the ‘man made’ & ‘issues of space’ as well as work inspired by scenes from the south east hopefully capturing the beauty mood and atmosphere of the environment which played such important role in his development as an artist and which continues to be such a creative source for so many. Currently Marc is shooting digitally as well as conventionally, and produces a large output of personal work every year as he shoots continually in order to satisfy his passion for image making.

Alison Stolwood The ‘Home Away from Home’ series of static caravan images were photographed on Mersea Island in Essex. They explore a human relationship with the countryside and an interaction with the landscape; providing a familiar environment from which to access a controlled experience of nature. The caravans themselves are a direct and unique expression of their occupants tastes and lifestyles albeit, the countryside in turn provides a reflection of our hand in its creation. As the caravan shows a glimpse of the individual, the landscape in which it sits shows the ways in which it has been formed to adapt to the uses of a changing society.

e all know that us Brits love a curry but a lot of us are scared of cooking a curry from scratch, thinking that it’s far too complicated or you can’t get the ingredients locally. Well that’s not necessarily true. You will need to buy some spices at first which may seem expensive but you then have them as store cupboard items and different combinations are used in different curries so there will be less to buy next time you want to cook up an Indian meal. You might also be surprised as to what you can buy in your local supermarket, for example Morrisons sells chapati flour and dried curry leaves and Tescos stocks tamarind paste. We enjoy cooking in our house but are no experts so the idea is that the recipes we feature in Zone are not really complicated. We have chosen a few recipes from a great Indian cookbook, entitled A Little Taste of India (£9.99 from Murdoch Books). We have picked dishes that work well together - but that doesn’t mean you have to cook all of them to make a great meal, you can cook a couple of the dishes and have them with shop made breads and plain rice. Also not all the dishes have to be cooked fresh on the day - the potato dish can be cooked the day before and then re-heated in the oven, the rotis can also be made in advance and frozen. These aren’t really quick recipes but if you enjoy cooking and love a good curry then it’s worth the bit of time and effort needed to make this delicious Indian feast!

Tips!

1) If you don’t have a karhai, you can use a heavy-based frying, like a sauté pan. 2) The recipes for the Saag Roti’s, makes 20. These can be frozen and when required just defrost and gently re-heat in the oven.

Creamy Prawn Curry A Little Taste Of India

Creamy Prawn Curry Ingredients: 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) tiger prawns 11/2 tablespoons lemon juice 3 tablespoons oil 1/2 onion, ďŹ nely chopped 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 5 cm (2 in) piece of cinnamon stick 4 cloves 7 cardamom pods 5 Indian bay leaves (cassia leaves) 2 cm (3/4 in) piece of ginger, grated 3 garlic cloves, chopped 1 teaspoon chilli powder 50 g (2 oz) creamed coconut mixed with 150 ml (2/3 cup) water, or 150 ml (2/3 cup) coconut milk

NOTES: This curry serves 4. I would say that it make 4 fairly small portions. I would suggest some side dishes to accompany it. It says to use Indian Bay leaves, we just used normal English bay leaves and it tasted great. Also, we opted to use the coconut millk option and it was really nice.

Serves 4

Peel and devein the prawns, leaving the tails intact. Put them in a bowl, add the lemon juice, then toss together and leave them for 5 minutes. Rinse the prawns under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Heat the oil in a karhai or heavy-based frying pan and fry the onion until lightly browned. Add the turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, bay leaves, ginger and garlic, and fry for 1 minute. Add the chilli powder, creamed coconut or coconut milk, and salt, to taste, and slowly bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the prawns, return to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the prawns are cooked through and the sauce is thick.

41


Lemon Rice Ingredients: 250g cooked basmati rice 3 tbsp vegetable oil 2 tsp mustard seeds 3 dried chillies (left whole) 1/2 tsp ground tumeric 4 tbsp roasted peanuts 12 curry leaves torn up Salt to season 1 lemon

NOTES: This dish easliy serves four and any left over is delicious cold the next day with cold meats and salad.

Serves 4

Cook the rice as per the instructions on the packet and set aside Heat the oil in a large lidded frying pan and add the mustard seeds and chilli and fry with the lid on until lightly browned. Add the tumeric, peanuts and curry leaves and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in the lemon juice and cook for a further minute. Add the cooked rice and fry until heated through. Squeeze the lemon over the rice trying to get some of the esh on the rice for extra lemony bits. 42

Potato Masala

A Little Taste Of India

ZONE.REALITYFOOD


Potato Masala Ingredients 2 tablespoons oil 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds 10 curry leaves 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric 1 cm (1/4 in) piece of ginger, grated 2 green chillies, finely chopped 2 onions, chopped 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) waxy potatoes, cut into 2 cm (3/4 in) cubes 1 tablespoon tamarind purée (page 250) Serves 4

NOTES: If you are unsure about timings, you can always do stage 1 first and wait until you are ready to put the potatoes in. I would say it takes about 30 minutes to cook, from when you start stage 2. We used normal mustard seeds, not black. We used Tamarind paste instead of purée.

Stage 1: Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan, add the mustard seeds, cover and, when they start to pop, add the curry leaves, turmeric, ginger, chilli and onion and cook, uncovered, until the onion is soft. Stage 2: Add the potato cubes and 250 ml (1 cup) water to the pan, bring to the boil, cover and cook until the potato is tender and almost breaking up. If there is any liquid left in the pan, simmer, uncovered, until it evaporates. If the potato isn’t cooked and there is no liquid left, add a little more and continue to cook. Add the tamarind purée and season with salt, to taste.

45


Saag Roti Ingredients 200 g (1/2 bunch) English spinach leaves, stalks removed 500 g (32/3 cups) atta (chapati flour) or 250 g (12/3 cups) wholemeal flour and 250 g (2 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ghee or oil ghee or oil, for cooking

NOTES: Why not make 20 and freeze some for another day? We used the flour mix as opposed to chapati flour.

Makes 20

Cook the spinach briefly in a little simmering water until it is just wilted, then refresh in cold water. Drain thoroughly, then finely chop. Squeeze out any extra water by putting the spinach between two plates and pushing them together. Sift the atta and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the spinach, ghee and about 250 ml (1 cup) tepid water and mix to form a soft, pliable dough. Turn out the dough onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes. 46

Divide the dough into 20 balls. Working with one portion at a time and keeping the rest covered, on a lightly floured surface roll out each portion evenly to a 12 cm (5 in) circle about 1 mm (1/12 in) thick. Heat a tava, griddle or heavy-based frying pan until hot, oil it with ghee and cook one roti at a time. Cook each on one side, covered with a saucepan lid (this will help keep them soft), for about 1 minute. Turn it over, cover again and cook the other side for 2 minutes. Check the roti a few times to make sure it doesn’t overcook. The roti will blister a little and brown in some places. Remove the roti and keep it warm under a tea towel. Cook the remaining roti.

Triple Tipple! With Charles Mears-Lamb

W

ine choice is so great now, it’s hard to tell what really is a ‘good buy’ or not. When we see bottles of wine supposedly reduced to

half price in the supermarket, it’s hard to tell if that’s a good deal or just a marketing scam. Well why not just treat yourself to something that you know is good. We asked trusted wine importer, Charles Mears-Lamb from Noble Wines to recommend some great wines

for you. Charles hand picked a couple of light summer wines and something special to go with the Indian food on the previous pages.

ZONE.WINE


Woodlands, Chardonnay Australia: £5.99 - £6.99 This wine is not like your typical Australian white with all oak aroma and no taste. It is lightly oaked to the point of being un-oaked and with a good melon tangy overtones. My fiancé was delighted when I bought some of this home and it now has its own spot on the wine rack (but never for long). Perfect as a light wine that will go with any light dish such as salads or white meats but will stand on its own too. Available at: Restaurants/Pubs and Independent Retailers

Woodlands, Shiraz Australia: £5.99 - £6.99 Yes another Australian wine and of the same vineyard. What a wonderful wine, showing good blackberry fruits and perfect tannin, it doesn’t leave you gasping for water (although 20 mins airing wouldn’t hurt). It has a smooth yet powerful punch to the tongue proving the aroma and colour doesn’t disappoint like so many other wines in its class. I’d pay more not to be disappointed. Available at: Restaurants/Pubs and Independent Retailers

Featured Wine

Ideal for spicy dishes or on it’s own. Why not try this with the Indian recipes on pages 38-47

49

St Clair, Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand: £11.99-£12.99 This most amazing wine is NOT a typical Sauvignon. The late harvest from specially selected sections of the St Clair estate give an amazing amount of fruit; passion fruit, ripe melon and sweetened gooseberry spring into every sip. It has a long finish but is dry also. There are many undertones to this wine and it’s worth much more. Due to the climate and soil it is available almost every year. Because of its fruit it makes it an ideal partner to spicy dishes and can be enjoyed on its own. Trying is believing but beware, it is 13% abv and you’d never know it! Available at: Hotels, Restaurants and Independent Retailers

10% OFF OFFER Noble Wines believe that not only should you be able to buy a good quality wine but believe in passing on bulk discount to you, so when you buy 6 bottles of wine as standard they offer you a 10% discount. But, for a limited time, they are offering Zone readers 10% discount when buying just one bottle Of course if you want more than one, don’t let us stop you! Offer available until 30th June 2008.

Design A Masterpiece With bedding plants By Jill Hart

J

une is the month when the gardening season really gets into its swing and the annual bedding plant starts to take centre stage in all its many colours, shapes and sizes.

50

growing summer bedding from seed has changed. It is now very easy to buy ready-seeded (Plug Plants) through the post or from your local nursery, which means you can see exactly how many plants you’re getting. Seed sowing can be erratic - sometimes you only get one or two plants from a whole packet of seeds and another time you might get dozens!

Bedding plants have been around for a long time. In the 1850s the craze for plants such as Lobelia, Petunias, Salvias and so on really took off. Prior to this, in 1695, the glass/ window tax had been introduced by William III. People with more than 6 windows in their houses were made to pay a tax to raise funds needed to pay off debts incurred by the wars in Ireland and on the Continent. The tax was not repealed until 1851 and people were able to buy glass for large greenhouses which provided shelter for the early sowing of annual plants.

Bedding plants can be used in a variety of ways - the most spectacular being carpet bedding. These schemes were very popular in Victorian days and many examples can still be seen each summer in many parks and seafronts across the country. Eastbourne seafront being a very good example and well worth a visit.

Whilst not many people today still have greenhouses, the trend for

No many of us can compete with Eastbourne these days, but smaller


colourful displays can be seen in many private and public gardens. Some people devote whole flower beds to creating their masterpiece, whilst others choose to arrange their plants in groups or dotted randomly through permanent plantings. Edging flower beds, either with a single colour or with two different colours, has always been popular. Alyssum (white) and Lobelia (blue) are old favourites for edging and - in my opinion - still take a lot of beating. Not everybody would agree with me but there’s plenty of other plants to choose from these days! So if you haven’t grown your own, pop down to your local nursery, check out what’s on offer and start creating your own masterpiece! ■
