Using the native Mediterranean garden as a model, Pattie Barron shows how gardening in today's ever hotter and drier conditions need not be a barrier to enjoyment, success and creativity. The Mediterranean style is not for the faint-hearted, but for those who like their plants spirited and their flower-bed exuberant. It is a maquis of the gardener's own making, that hums with colour and spicy scents, that is thick with wild flowers and perfumed shrubs and twisting vines and tangles of Tuscan honeysuckle. The Mediterranean courtyard offers a different kind of excitment, of terracotta pots with pink and scarlet geraniums, tangerine and fuscia bourgainvillea, lemon terr and fig. Drought Gardeningf shows you how to plant the real, heady thing wherever you live, adapting the soil in your garden and using Mediterranean plants for a glorious garden that is just the right side of profusion. There are sound practical reasons for turning your garden - or a corner of it - to Mediterranean natives. These plants are drought-proof by nature, and timely contenders for the increasingly dry, hot summers we are experiencing around the globe. They are mostly evergreen - and evergrey, so there is never a lean season. Their robust, aromatic foliage shrugs off pests and diseases. They are also low-maintenance, needing no staking, watering, feeding or complex pruning. Tough love, no pampering, pays off. The Mediterranean garden is a vibrant paradise, not just for admiring, but for living in, lazing in, losing yourself in; savouring, and harvesting, the powerful, peppery blend of aromatic plants as you walk amongst them. This book will tell you how to acheive that paradise in your own plot.
