The fourth edition of this popular title has been given a completely new look, but it remains the same practical illustrated guide that is a must-have for all gardeners. The text has been updated to incorporate more indigenous species, locally bred hybrids, and waterwise plants, in keeping with changing trends that recognize the importance of gardening in harmony with the natural environment.

The bulk of the book comprises directories that describe over 2000 plants (trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, creepers, bulbs, grasses and roses) with each entry accompanied by symbols that depict the ideal growing conditions, such as water and sun requirements, hardiness to frost, and whether the plant is deciduous, evergreen or flowering.

A brief introduction covers garden planning and design, maintenance, and how to deal with pests and diseases. The book concludes with a handy list of plants, grouped according to their suitability for particular circumstances, such as drought-tolerance, growing in containers, in full or partial shade, or to provide flowers for the vase.

Gardening allows you to know where your food comes from – and that is empowering! Not growing your own food is leaving one of the most important and basic aspects of human life to someone else

For me, healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy people. Our health and wellbeing are the result of all the choices we make. We definitely are what we eat – and grow

With this book, I hope that gardening may feed and sweeten your soul, and gladden your heart, as it does for me every day of my life. - Susan Torrance

Most gardens have shady spots, but some gardens have a real shade ‘problem’. Whether it is caused by large or overhanging trees, tall buildings, or just being on the ‘wrong side of the street’, fi nding the best plants for a shady area can be challenging, particularly if the rest of your garden basks in sunshine all year round. Shade plants are not necessarily tropical, although many tropical plants thrive in shade. Some delicate leafy plants will scorch and burn in hot sun, some plants like shady conditions but not damp soil, while others grow happily in damp, boggy ground that receives minimum sunlight. Gardening in the Shade examines the different types of shade and the effect it has on plant growth.

It presents solutions to common problems such as feeding, watering and mulching shade plants, and how to deal with exacerbating factors such as wind, frost and soil type. Popular shade plants, like clivias, bromeliads, fuchsias and ferns are given special features, and a directory of species lists plants under headings like ground covers, tropical-looking perennials, and succulents.

Dick and James Strawbridge know what it's like to make these changes. Between them, they've lived on a smallholding, in a terraced house, and even a chateau.

Ever wondered how to make a garden attractive in December? Or what to do with that corner by the dustbin? Answers to these questions can be found in this compact and charming book of tips for the green-fingered, accompanied by Heath Robinson's highly inventive and humorous cartoons. First published in 1938, the book gives an insight into gardening trends on the eve of the Second World War while also addressing common concerns faced by gardeners. It features many typically elaborate contraptions such as the Combined Telescopic Spaderake for digging and raking at the same time, the Inebriate Roller for making wobbly garden paths and the Osoeezi Slugsticker. While some are patently ridiculous - a lawn is de-thistled and resown with the help of a barrel of grass seed strapped onto a small donkey - others are before their time, such as a special pump that can divert your bathwater into your garden hose, a contraption that is not wildly dissimilar to gadgets on the market today. Finally, the growing of vegetables inspires some sage advice: 'with the right kind of upbringing, a marrow will attain astonishing dimensions, and can be used for boasting purposes.' Poking gentle fun at a British obsession with a detailed illustration on almost every page, this book will delight both aspiring and experienced gardeners alike.

In 'n klein tuin is dit noodsaaklik dat die ruimte deeglik beplan en ook goed versorg word. Omdat 'n mens met 'n beperkte area te doen het, verander die ontwerpbeginsels ietwat, en kundige, praktiese gebruik van die beskikbare ruimte is dus essensieel.

So kan 'n tuinpaadjie deel uitmaak van die spasie rondom die swembad, en as dit 'n bietjie brer gemaak word, is dit sommer terselfdertyd ook 'n bruikbare patio. Net so kan 'n klein swembad ook 'n waterverfraaiing wees. As die woonplek se boustyl geometries en hoekig is, is reguit lyne verkieslik, tensy die beskikbare ruimte voldoende is vir kurwes.

'n Mens kan plante van verskillende hoogtes langs 'n skutmuur plant, en 'n houer met kleurvolle teen 'n kantmuur kan 'n swembad of visdam interessant laat lyk. 'n Sitplek wat natuurlik by die plante in die tuin inskakel, maak te veel meubels op die patio self onnodig. 'n Kussing wat spesiaal vir die sitplek gemaak word is boonop gerieflik en sorg vir 'n spatseltjie bykomende kleur.

'n Klein tuintjie moet te alle tye onberispelik lyk juis omdat dit nie groot is nie. Dan kan 'n mens dit n sy geheel dwarsdeur die jaar geniet. Die geheim is om houers en beddings altyd kleurvol te hou, hetsy met blomme of loof van verskillend kleure. U plaaslike tuinsentrum sal u met raad en daad bystaan sodat u klein tuin die hele jaar lank 'n lushof kan wees. Onthou dat plante, net soos mense, kos en water nodig het, asook nuwe potgrond en kompos en selfs 'n vars laag bogrond.

Geniet u tuin en mag die hoofstukke in hierdie boek wat handel oor ontwerp, instandhouding, peste en siektes, houerplante en die reeks plante wat vir klein tuine geskik is, u nie net inspireer om tuin te maak nie, maar u ook jare van vreugde in u tuin verseker.

Any garden belongs to everyone who sees it - it is like a book and everybody who visits it will find different things. Marc Hamer has designed and nurtured 12 acres of garden for over two decades. It is rarely visited so he is the only person who fully knows its secrets; but it is not his own. His relationship with the garden's owner is both distant and curiously intimate, steeped in the mysterious connection which exists between two people who inhabit the same space in very different ways. In this life-enhancing book Marc takes us month-by-month through his experiences both working in the garden and outside it, as the seasons' changes bring new plants and wildlife to the fore and lead him to reflect on his past and future. Through his peaceful and meditative prose we learn about gardening folklore and wisdom, the joys of manual labour, his path from solitary homelessness to family contentment and the cycle of growth and decay that runs through both the garden's life and our own. Beautifully illustrated, Seed to Dust is a moving and restorative account of a life lived in harmony with nature. You've seen gates like that at the side of the road, you've wondered what's behind them. They really are the entrance to the wonders you imagined.
