Summary
"This book is based on the highly successful book Gardening Down-under by Kevin Handreck. Good Gardens with Less Water presents the reader with concise and easy-to-understand advice on how to care for garden soils and grow good quality plants even under the toughest of conditions. The book offers prescriptions for assessing garden soils and selecting growing medium for potted plants, soil conditioning, making and using compost, use of fertilisers in gardens and potted plants, and making the best use of fresh and recycled water. A separate chapter on caring for potted plants will have particular appeal for anyone with limited space such as courtyards or balconies. This beautifully illustrated, full-colour book contains a wealth of practical information suitable for any size garden for all types of plants, from vegetables to fruit tress and lawns to ornamentals. Anyone wishing to garden sustainably will love this book."--Provided by publisher
