Bring Nature Back to your Garden – Western Edition

A motivating guide to indigenous gardening in the Western regions of South Africa.



Although similar in many ways to the much acclaimed first edition of its eastern counterpart, this edition of BRING NATURE BACK TO YOUR GARDEN covers the regions west of Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein, an area which includes Cape Town.

A delightfully humorous publication, packed with a wealth of information on environmentally friendly gardening, it motivates gardeners to grow indigenous vegetation with the object of attracting insects and other garden wildlife. It illustrates how easy it is to work with nature instead of against it. In this way gardeners can contribute to conservation right on their own doorsteps, while deriving great pleasure in the process.

Avoiding scientific jargon makes it readable to all gardeners, yet the large amount of information is almost encyclopedic and will also be more than useful to conservationists and anyone with an interest in the natural sciences.

Moderately priced, it is a must for all nature-loving gardeners!
