Book Description

Have you despaired when long sunny days have left your garden without water? This book provides the answer to the effects of dryness and drought and shows you how to create a beautiful and productive garden - even when water is scarce.

Easy and effective remedies are explained in a clear and practical way; step-by-step photographs show how to store water when it rains using water butts, containers and ponds, and how to conserve water used in the home. Practical advice is given on using compost to conserve water, and on lawn treatments. Special treatments and planting methods are covered in detail and help is given on grouping plants, correct watering and drought resistant plants. This is a book for all gardeners. It is superbly illustrated throughout and it contains all you need to know about creating a perfect garden when there is a water shortage.

About the Author

About Charlotte Green

Charlotte Green was fascinated by the idea of natural gardening at a very ealry age. She has a large flourishing vegetable garden at her Sussex home, where she grows dozens of varieties of herbs, plus many topical varieties, and she also keeps ponies, ducks, geese, chickens, and sheep. Her forty acres of woodland were recently named as a site of nature-conservation interest, having been found to contain 250 different species of plants. When not gardening, she loves to travel the world studying exotic flora and fauna.
