The Resilient Garden
Weather patterns are changing - earlier springs, record summer temperatures and erratic rainfall. And even when it is raining, we still have to be aware of conserving water. From her gardens in the dry heat of Australia and the wet of Hampshire, Marylyn Abbott has learnt about plant behavior in these conditions and divulges her knowledge in this aptly timed book. She focuses on the dry gardens that work and why, how to create illusions of water, how to care for dry climate plants, and create the right conditions (including mulches to conserve water, plant groupings, preparation of plants) and drainage for the times when it suddenly pours and pours. Together with a list of beautiful plants that will 'weather well', this is both a practical and inspirational read.
