VAN JAARSVELD, ERNST
Wonderful Waterwise Gardening
(Cape Town: Tafelberg, 2000) 0624038408. . 4to; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 144, incl. index; profusely illustrated in full colour, with photographs of the environments and species considered; map. Earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper. Near fine condition. "South Africa's rich regional diversity makes local gardening a huge challenge. Based on ecological principles regarding regional indigenous gardening, the aim of this book is to simplify gardening and to make it as cost effective and maintenance free as possible for all South African gardeners, indigenous plant lovers and landscapers. 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.".

Dustwrapper a little rubbed. Very good condition. "In the heart of Outeniqualand, where sunbirds tumble in fynbos redolent of herbs and honey and where rocky outcrops at the very edge of Africa crash into the ocean, a little farm nestles in the verdant hills. In true fairy-tale style, through an unexpected legacy from a little-known aunt, author Gillian Rattray and her husband Peter were able to purchase this farm and so to embark on their long-cherished dream of retirement in the country. A Cape Country Chronicle is an evocative journal of life at Fairview Farm: industrious days, rich in incident and bustling with activity; the sustained invasion by builders and guests; and the planting of a miniature Sissinghurst - all are recorded with humour and enlivened by the strokes of a gentle and affectionate pen. Numerous watercolours illuminate the text. With sure, vivid brushwork Gillian Rattray captures the essence of the rich bird and insect life and pays tribute to the floral kingdom of the south-eastern Cape.".
