Description


As global warming increases, gardening must adapt to the changes in climate—including dry periods and droughts. But, thanks to this timely new eco-conscious guide, people can enjoy their gardens while still conserving water. Professional horticulturist Ian Cooke shows how to make a garden grow by storing and recycling water, boosting soil’s water retention, using mulches and drought-tolerant crops, and irrigating. A thorough section on the aesthetics of dry gardening includes an A-to-Z of waterwise plants, as well as planting schemes. This book is essential for every gardener who cares about the environment.
