Destructive bushfires are increasing in frequency and intensity
around the world. For people living in fire prone areas there are
no reliable guides about which plants have low flammability and
which are frighteningly flammable. Safer Gardens is that guide,
with over 500 plants assessed, based on fire research from around
the world. Readers can look up a plant in the Plant Flammability
Table to get an idea of its flammability then turn to the A-Z for
more detailed information. The book contains advice about ways to
create a more firesafe garden, including the need to carefully
manage the use of mulch and hedges. This is citizen science,
written by a gardener for other gardeners. Complex and potentially
confusing science is made comprehensible and usable, to help you
make your garden and hence your house safer. To find out more go to
the www.firesafergardens.com website. It gives a good cross-section
of the issues covered in the book, including sample pages from the
Plant Flammability Table and the A-Z.
