Create a Mediterranean Garden : Planting a low-water, low-maintenance paradise - anywhere, Hardback Book

Create a Mediterranean Garden : Planting a low-water, low-maintenance paradise - anywhere Hardback



"I have written this book so that others can experience the thrill of making a garden that is as boisterous as it is beautiful; a garden that sizzles with vivid colour and is alive with bees and butterflies; a garden of intoxicating scents that suffuse your skin and make you feel good even if the day is grey. And I also wanted to share the pleasure of a garden that somehow puts itself together with little intervention from the gardener - no planting plans required - and, as a bonus, needs no watering and very little maintenance." The traditional Mediterranean garden offers a garden that is beautiful through every season, whatever the climate, so that it can survive through the driest summers, and yet can cope with damp, rain and even frost.

The low-water no-water method is for those who like their plants spirited and their flower beds exuberant.

There are instructions for planting evergreens with robust, aromatic foliage, as well as low-maintenance shrubs that need no staking, watering, feeding or pruning.

The book shows how tough love, not pampering, pays off, giving you a drought-proof and aromatic paradise in your own plot.

Create a garden that is full of radiance and scent, with vivid flowers and foliage, and aromatic herbs - the perfect outdoor living room, whatever the weather. * Includes a foreword by writer and broadcaster Richard Mabey, and photographs by Simon McBride
