The definitive guide for my indigenous gardening adventure. Well worth consulting if you live in Southern Africa, want to grow a garden in harmony with the local environment and wildlife, or just want to learn more about the wide variety of amazing plants available. And also very well-illustrated. I only wish there were more books like this one.
