Author: Charles and Julia Botha
Eastern & Northern Edition
Not just another gardening book, BRING NATURE BACK TO YOUR GARDEN motivates gardeners to adopt a completely different mind-set: instead of growing foreign plants and killing perceived pests, gardeners can benefit from planting indigenous vegetation with the object of actually attracting insects and other garden wildlife.
It illustrates how easy it is to work with nature instead of against it and encourages gardeners to help restore our fast-disappearing natural heritage. Virtually every aspect of environmentally-friendly gardening is covered, making it a complete “how to” guide and debunking some long-held myths.
This new edition is a greatly improved version of the much acclaimed original, which won a University of KwaZulu-Natal book prize. Besides being greatly expanded with much more information, it has nearly 100 colour pictures and almost twice as many black and white illustrations.
The same light-hearted and entertaining style has been retained and technical terms have been avoided, making it an easy read. The book is enhanced by delightful humorous drawings that emphasise points made in the text.
