In recent years our growing awareness of the changing climate and other environmental issues has focused efforts on how we can change our gardens to become more sustainable, and more waterwise in particular.
A simple solution is to grow plants that need little or no additional water. These waterwise plants come in a remarkable array of shapes and sizes. They come in all plant types too, from low groundcovers to big trees. This book contains details of 200 drought-tolerant plants for Australian waterwise gardens. Waterwise plants do not limit our gardens, they enrich them beyond our expectation. And there are more out there than we know. The ones in this book are just the tip of the iceberg ? and a great place to start!
