Description

Seasonal Tasks Using Sensible Organic Methods

New edition of a guide to cultivating a healthy garden in Australian conditions, first published in 1989. The updated edition includes a revised index.

  • How can you increase the yield of your tomatoes? 
  • What’s the most effective way to raise seedlings?
  • Which fertilizer is best?

Since its publication in 1989, The Practical Australian Gardener has become a classic, and Peter Cundall one of the country’s most trusted advisers.  This is the complete garden guide, whether you’re planting vegetables, ornamentals, house plants, home orchards, or landscaping a larger area.  It tells you how to have a pest-free garden without using dangerous chemicals, and includes advice on keeping larger pests – such as dogs, cats and possums – out of your yard. With a week-by-week plan of action for the whole year, and with a revised index in this edition making it even easier to use, The Practical Australian Gardener is the only book you’ll need for a healthy, flourishing garden.

Peter Cundall writes gardening columns for several newspapers and magazines, and is the presenter of ABC Television’s Gardening Australia program.

The Practical Australian Gardener comes up with answers when other gardening books leave you unsatisfied. All that extra practical information you need for maintaining a really flourishing garden, is here. Peter Cundall provides a guide to flower and vegetable gardens, house plants, home orchards and landscaping in each month of the gardening year. And, he adds his inimitable advice on such topics as drip irrigation; keeping dogs, cats and possums out of the garden; landscaping a sloping site; using rotary hoe and pest control without poisons.
