CSIRO Good Gardens With Less Water
There are several sets of characters in this book. The central character is water. It is essential to all life. Waters from different sources are not all created equal though; they come with different amounts of dissolved salts and sometimes other contaminants. One part of this book will show you how to assess water from different sources and how to use this information when you use these kinds of waters in your garden. The characters of the second set are almost beyond counting. They are the many thousands of plants that you can choose from to produce the visible part of your garden. They will not thank you if you have put them in an environment they do not like. Life will be easiest for you as their carer, and for them, if you have chosen only plants that like your soil and climate, and that manage with the amount and quality of water that you can provide to them.
