| Australian Plants for Gardens in the Sun
By Rodger Elliot
Plants that enjoy sunshine and can cope with dry conditions.
The Australian plants selected for this book have much to offer gardeners for cultivation in temperate and warm temperate regions where there is plenty of sunshine and a high probability of extended dry periods. In most cases these plants will also perform well in cool temperate and subtropical regions throughout the world.
There is basic information on growing plants in containers, pruning and shaping of plants, watering which is such a hot topic at present with climate change and global warming on everybody’s lips, fertilising, mulching, propagation, pests and diseases.
Under the various headings of Groundcovers, Tufting Plants, Climbers and Ramblers, Shrubs – small to tall and Trees over 100 very choice plants are presented. Cultivation and propagation information is provided or each entry. A highlight for each section is utilising plants in possible designs for ‘Picture Making’. In the ‘Picture Making’ segments only plants covered in this book are included in the suggested designs. The Quick Reference Plant Selection Guide is there to help to choose plants for specific areas and requirements.
