Jack Kirby and the X-man
If you have a garden in Canberra then you NEED this book.

Trying to grow lemons and it isn't working for you - they grow best in front of a north facing wall with protection from the frost... Want to grow spinach - well good luck as it is 'difficult crop to grow except under ideal conditions' - see the book for what those ideal conditions are.

I'd like to quote from Chapter 1 for why this book is important:
In any Australian bookstore you can find a whole range of gardening books... So why bother

If you live in Canberra, or in a place with a similar climate and you love gardening, then this is 'must' for your shelf. Now in the 10th Edition with updated information on saving water, design for smaller spaces, food production, best practices for preparing soil, mulching, watering, and choosing the best plants.
