Mother's Day special: buy my book & get a FREE magazine (plus free delivery)

Offer valid until Sunday 14 May. 

Treat your Mum to a year's worth of sumptuous seasonal preserving recipes & gardening inspiration & I'll throw in a special gift: the latest issue of the NZ edition of the Australian Women's Weekly! (I write a monthly column for AWW and this issue features my fabulously over-the-top bug hotel.) 

Foggydale Farm Jam Sessions is gardening guru Lynda Hallinan's new book and takes seasonal, organic fruit (and the occasional vege) from the orchard to the pantry with oodles of practical gardening advice, a fair bit of humour and loads of easy harvest recipes for homegrown, homemade preserves.

A 50:50 mix of gardening know-how and recipes, Foggydale Farm Jam Sessions covers the basics of making jams and jellies just like our grandmothers used to, but without the hassle of slaving over a hot stove all summer. 

This beautiful 256-page hardcover book, with original watercolour illustrations by artist Lindsay Eller and gorgeous photography by Sally Tagg, is packed with honest growing information and hundreds of fruit tree variety recommendations for New Zealand gardens, delivered with authority but in Lynda’s signature entertaining style. 

Every copy ordered is personally autographed by me, and if it's a gift (for you or someone else), I'll add a dedication too. (Click on "add a note to your order" when ordering.)
