Synopsis: Though undoubtedly the only wise way to garden in these water-conscious times, drought-proof gardening sounds a little - well - dry, conjuring visions of hardy but uninspiring succulents and cacti. It doesn't have to be this way! In Plants for Dry Gardens, horticulturist Marcelle Nankervis presents a plant directory of surprising depth and variety. Over 600 species, both indigenous and exotic, are featured, and information on each plant's cultivation requirements, growth habits and preferred aspect provides all the detail you need to choose the water-efficient plants best suited to your climate and garden style. In addition to the directory, Plants for Dry Gardens provides valuable information on soil preparation and water delivery methods; step-by-step cultivation techniques; helpful hints; and a guide to garden styles, listing species suitable for formal, cottage, Indo-Asian, contemporary and Mediterranean style gardens.
