Book News Annotation:
Australian gardener Trevor Nottle asserts that Mediterranean- climate gardens should be designed to perform in hot dry summers and mild wet winters rather than being modelled after English cottage gardens. He recommends a whole host of gorgeous and, of course, suitable plants, with detailed information on lean-soil preparation and improvement; water gardening and water conservation; the use of native plants; shade, color, and texture design; and other topics. Includes ample resource lists and some 100 intoxicating color photos.
