'Back to Your Roots'

I've a piece in Men's Health magazine for March, 'Back to Your Roots', in newsagents now.

I'm basically revealing the virtues of gardening, for men and their families - why we might want to avoid leaving everything to professional gardeners. A sample:
...gardens are one of the last, great bastions of the amateur. From computers, to cars, to the sharemarket, our daily life is dominated by experts. This is why they sometimes spend more daytime in our homes that we do. But like sport and cooking, gardens are where we can proudly, clumsily, happily be amateurs – and benefit into the bargain.
