The aura of a Cape cottage gives it a special charm.".

Roses
(Cape Town: Struik, 1994). .

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'.".

They can therefore survive when most other plants would succumb. This book provides adequate guidance to identifying and understanding these plants.".

We all want instant gardens - and we can have them! So many people have asked me to explain indigenous gardening principles: which indigenous plants would thrive in the region in which they live, and what is the correct planting sequence; how can they efficiently develop a well-balanced, low-maintenance garden, which will reflect the character of the region? This book answers all of these questions, and more, providing the reader with valuable advice and information on the planning and establishment of an indigenous, waterwise garden.".
