This authoritative and practical book--written in an approachable and accessible style--focuses on growing and using native plants in the home garden. It provides expert information on the fundamentals--soils, cultivation techniques, pruning, fertilising and maintenance--and looks at different styles of garden design, using Australian plants not only for aesthetic reasons but for creating droughtproof gardens, fire resistant gardens, and environments attractive to native fauna as well. Growing your own bush foods is also covered. Highly illustrated and information-packed, The Australian Native Garden showcases some of the best designed Australian gardens and explores rural areas around Australia where indigenous species thrive in the wild, representing a fascinating source of inspiration and information.
