Synopsis

Gardening the Mediterranean Way Practical Solutions for Summer-dry Climates by Heidi Gildemeis, Richard G. Turner

Summer drought and poor soil confronts gardeners with difficult garden conditions that impose stress on plants and gardener alike. However, it needn't be so. In practical and inspirational terms, Gardening the Mediterranean Way shows the reader how to create a healthy, lush garden that conserves water, prevents soil erosion and uses environmentally friendly, chemical-free methods. Heidi Gildemeister marshals her considerable experience, design flair and imagination to explain how best to exploit the variety of topographical features and microclimates that exist in every Mediterranean climate region of the world. Her presentation of 20 gardens - among them an olive grove, a scented shade garden and a haven by the sea, each with extensive plant lists and practical advice - is at the heart of the book, illustrated with 380 of her own exquisite full colour photographs. This important reference work for beginners and the experienced alike is enhanced by a comprehensive list of drought-tolerant plants, which offers invaluable information for gardeners keen to preserve the beauty of their gardens throughout the dry summer. It is completed by a glossary, useful addresses and an extensive bibliography.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
