BROWN, JAMES AMBROSE
A Year in a Cottage Garden
(Cape Town: New Holland, 1997) 1853684686. . 210 x 150 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 112; colour photographs; line drawings. Fine condition. "This little book is the story of a man and a woman's love of a particular small garden and the thoughts and musings it brings to mind over the changing seasons. It is not a gardening manual or for specialists - far from it! It is for the pleasure of sharing how two people feel about a much loved creation - told in the rambling way of day-to-day jottings on the garden's moods and its joys. The aura of a Cape cottage gives it a special charm.".

GELDENHUYS, ESTHER
Roses
(Cape Town: Struik, 1994). . Photography by Anthony Johnson. 4to; laminated pictorial boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; decorative endpapers; pp. 103 + (i); lavishly illustrated in full colour. Merest trace of foxing to flaps and prelims. Near fine condition. All you need to know about roses in southern Africa. "There are virtually no areas in southern Africa (or anywhere else in the world, for that matter) where roses can flourish without some effort being expended on them, although it is true to say that more effort is required in some areas than in others. In writing this book, therefore, the main aim has been to bring about a better understanding of the various factors that ultimately determine success or failure in growing beautiful roses. Essentially, by providing sound information about their proper care, the author illustrates that growing beautiful roses need never be labelled either 'hard work' or 'difficult'.".

(London, Pelham, new edition, 1983). . Laminated pictorial dustwrapper, pp. xvi + 368, plates, including colour. Edges very slightly foxed. 'The old-fashioned flowers of the cottage garden have much to offer the modern gardener - rich yet subtle colours, a profusion of scents, hardiness, ease of propagation as well as a natural charm and willingness to live happily with a variety of plants. Long ignored and neglected, except by the discerning few, cottage flowers are beginning to enjoy a revival of popularity just as they are disappearing from the nurseryman's catalogue and dying out in the old gardens.'.

"Many thousands of people around the world have become involved with collecting and growing cacti and succulents. This is at the least a fascinating hobby and once infatuation has taken hold the wonder of it all rarely ceases to attract... Cacti and succulents are closely akin as both can withstand long periods of drought by storing water and nourishment in their stems, leaves and rootstock. They can therefore survive when most other plants would succumb. This book provides adequate guidance to identifying and understanding these plants.".
