Many plants that have become popular in Australian gardens were introduced from cold-climate countries, and while they may grow well in cooler regions they don't fare so well in warmer ones. SUCCESSFUL GARDENING IN WARM CLIMAtES helps you to identify the climate in your region and then takes you through the steps required to establish and maintain your garden, from composting, pruning and mulching to planting, fertilising and controlling pests and diseases. Part two looks at Productive Gardens, describing all the vegetables, herbs, fruiting trees and vines suitable for growing in warm climates. the final section of the book looks exclusively at ornamental gardening, with details on which ornamental species are most suitable for warm climates, including annuals and herbaceous perennials, azaleas, vireyas, camellias, gardenias, hibiscus, roses, Australian native plants, rainforest plants and spectacular warm-climate plants.
