Australia enjoys an astonishing range of unusual and beautiful plants. First published in 2002, The Australian Garden was the first book to show how Australian plants can be used in all
the major gardening styles. Choices include the untouched natural garden, coastal, arid, country, ‘walkabout’, grassland, cottage, wildflower, smalland courtyard, plus even formalgardens where control, however unobtrusive, is of the essence. Using Australian plants is critical to creating an‘Australian garden’ and this book covers all aspects of design rather than following oversea trends featuring exotic plants. The book includes features such as the beauty and tranquillity of water in gardens, adding touches of colour, appreciating sensuouselements and the joys of Australian wildlife within an harmonious mini native ecosystem
