Garden Plants for Central Otago by Ralph Markby
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Central Otago is a region with extreme climatic conditions: it is dry in summer and even drier in winter. Within the region itself, climate statistics reveal differing rainfall, temperatures and soil quality; a beautiful but challenging area to maintain a thriving garden. Garden Plants for Central Otago is an essential manual for everyone wanting to know those plants which can be successfully grown in Central Otago and the Southern Lakes District of New Zealand. The author, Ralph Markby, whose horticultural experience has been gained over the past 40 years, offers an extensive plant list which includes sections on trees for small and large properties, shrubs, perennials, ground cover, climbers, roses, rock gardens and finally a plant sourcing guide. He also provides practical advice on the basics of gardening: growing shelter from sun and wind, pruning trees, installing irrigation, making compost and much more. Garden Plants for Central Otago is illustrated with stunning colour photographs from the author's own collection.
