Gardens for All Seasons by Mary Horsfall is a gorgeous gardening lifestyle book celebrating the role of gardens in our lives, and advising on the timing of jobs in the gardening year throughout Australia.
Monthly chapters include topics such as planning, bushfire preparation, watering, pot plant care, mulching, weeding, fertilising, pruning, propagating, pest control, what to plant for different climate zones and what garden venues and events to visit.
Mary details her own gardening year, including jobs done, fruits and vegetables harvested, food cooked based on the harvest, what was in flower and wildlife observations - all on a month by month basis.
Each chapter includes a special topic of the month, such as fun for kids in the garden, biodiversity, manipulating microclimate, and fragrance and first aid. Covering both edible and decorative gardens, and including colour photographs as well as some of Mary's own recipes, Gardens for All Seasons is sure to please all types of gardeners.
