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.

Gardening Without Irrigation or without much, anyway First, you should know why a maritime Northwest raised-bed gardener named Steve Solomon became worried about his dependence on irrigation. I'm from Michigan. I moved to Lorane, Oregon, in April 1978 and homesteaded on 5 acres in what I thought at the time was a cool, showery green valley of liquid sunshine and rainbows. I intended to put in a big garden and grow as much of my own food as possible. Two months later, in June, just as my garden began needing water, my so-called 15-gallon-per-minute well began to falter, yielding less and less with each passing week. By August it delivered about 3 gallons per minute. Fortunately, I wasn't faced with a completely dry well or one that had shrunk to below 1 gallon per minute, as I soon discovered many of my neighbors were cursed with. Three gallons per minute won't supply a fan nozzle or even a common impulse sprinkler, but I could still sustain my big raised-bed garden by watering all night, five or six nights a week, with a single, 2-1/2 gallon-per-minute sprinkler that I moved from place to place. I had repeatedly read that gardening in raised beds was the most productive vegetable growing method, required the least work, and was the most water-efficient system ever known. So, without adequate irrigation, I would have concluded that food self-sufficiency on my homestead was not possible. In late September of that first year, I could still run that single sprinkler. What a relief not to have invested every last cent in land that couldn't feed us. For many succeeding years at Lorane, I raised lots of organically grown food on densely planted raised beds, but the realities of being a country gardener continued to remind me of how tenuous my irrigation supply actually was. We country folks have to be self-reliant: I am my own sanitation department, I maintain my own 800-foot-long driveway, the septic system puts me in the sewage business. A long, long response time to my 911 call means I'm my own self-defense force. And I'm my own water department. Without regular and heavy watering during high summer, dense stands of vegetables become stunted in a matter of days. Pump failure has brought my raised-bed garden close to that several times. Before my frantic efforts got the water flowing again, I could feel the stressed-out garden screaming like a hungry baby. As I came to understand our climate, I began to wonder about complete food self-sufficiency. How did the early pioneers irrigate their vegetables? There probably aren't more than a thousand homestead sites in the entire maritime Northwest with gravity water. Hand pumping into hand-carried buckets is impractical and extremely tedious. Wind-powered pumps are expensive and have severe limits. The combination of dependably rainless summers, the realities of self-sufficient living, and my homestead's poor well turned out to be an opportunity. For I continued wondering about gardens and water, and discovered a method for growing a lush, productive vegetable garden on deep soil with little or no irrigation, in a climate that reliably provides 8 to 12 virtually dry weeks every summer.

Table of Contents Introduction No Digging Gardening Compost Alternatives Sedge Peat and No Digging Improving Your Soil Structure The 4 Crop Rotation Method Sawdust and No Digging Birds in Your Garden Importance of Mulching Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction For centuries, this has been the lot of human beings, working the fields. Digging the ground before hand in order to prepare it for a new crop. Some people are going to wonder about this topic. What is this idea about no digging. As far as they know, any gardening without any digging is like having breakfast eggs without salt-and-pepper and toast with or without butter. Traditionally speaking, everybody knows that the land has to be dug and the ground aerated well, so that the seeds can get an opportunity to grow. But here is a gardener talking about no digging gardening? Well, that seems interesting! In fact, no digging gardening has been in Vogue for centuries, especially when people kept looking for shortcuts when they did not have to pick up their spades and their hose, and do the digging in the garden, especially when the weather was cold and blustery. This book is going to give you plenty of information on how people have managed to grow their gardens without any sort of digging. If you are thinking of becoming a gardener, but just hate the thought of picking up a spade and digging into the ground because it is such a tiresome and tiring exercise, here is some information about traditional non-gardening methods, which you might find interesting. In fact, this information is for all those people who have not heard that there is a controversy going on between people who advocate lots of digging and those people like I who really could not be bothered to dig, but still manage to have tolerable harvests!

The Zen gardens of Japan are places in which to meditate. They can be anything from a landscaped garden, complete with waterfalls, to a bed of raked pebbles. This ancient way of gardening goes back to the Zen Buddhist priest-gardeners of the thirteenth century. Based on abstract compositions, relying on simplicity and suggestion, their gardens were designed to liberate the imagination, while providing a starting point in the appreciation of everyday things. Zen Gardening is the first handbook to examine the concepts and techniques that make up this garden art and to apply them to the West. It explains the historical relationship between Zen and the development of gardens, and gives practical suggestions for the creation of a Zen garden at home. The chapters on the garden components and their adaptation for the West, principles of design, and construction work, are illustrated with over 150 line drawings. Step by step they show us how to make the most of corners of large gardens, of plots not large enough for lawns and flower beds, or of awkward passageways, alleys and terraces. The principles of Zen gardening are particularly relevant in our crowded conurbations. Keir Davidson's thoughtful and practical approach enables us to maximize our garden space and to create areas of calm in our own immediate environment. Without precedent in the West, his book will be a source of delight to gardeners of every persuasion.
