About this book

How to cope with the changing weather. We are all witnessing changing weather patterns - earlier springs, record summer temperatures and erratic rainfall. Marylyn Abbott has learnt about plant behaviour in these conditions and divulges her knowledge in this aptly timed book. She focuses on the dry gardens that work and why, how to create the right conditions (including mulches to conserve water, plant groupings, preparation of plants) and drainiage for the times when it suddenly pours and pours. Together with a list of beautiful plants that will 'weather well', this is both a practical and inspirational read.
