About the book: 

Garden Plants and Flowers is a compact directory of trees, shrubs and flowering plants that are ideal for growing in South African gardens. 

This revised edition has been updated to include new species, varieties and hybrids that meet the requirements of our diverse climate and habitats. The concise text includes details about plant growth and size, watering, feeding and pruning, and uses in the garden. User-friendly symbols indicate each plant’s key requirements, such as the amount of sun and water it requires, whether it is deciduous or evergreen, its level of drought, wind and frost tolerance, and if it attracts birds or insects, or bears flowers or fruit. A handy hint on each page provides general gardening information.
