This book will unlock the secrets and practical 'tricks of the trade' a gardener needs to know to enjoy gardening in a harsh, dry climate. Western Australia is one of the world's most difficult gardening environments. Many gardeners in WA started out using northern hemisphere gardening techniques only to end up bitterly disappointed. The gurus demonstrate many different ways to grow beautiful and productive gardens in a waterwise manner using plants that come from all over the world as well as Australia.

Without doubt this is one of the most important books ever on waterwise gardening and it is written in a style that is easy to read and understand. So anyone can benefit; from the beginner through to the most proficient gardener. This advice, whilst developed in Western Australia is applicable across the world as water conservation becomes a critical issue for most communities.

The book covers in detail, topics such as; soil quality is the key, water the essence of all life, working with your environment to get the best results, Lawns - cool green and clean, Roses the queen of garden flowers, Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs at home, Our favourite recipes, Your garden questions answered, our favourite waterwise plants and beautiful waterwise garden design.
