Plants for a Changing Climate
Climate change has wrought an even warmer and drier climate in those parts of the world regarded as having a Mediterranean climate. The gardener must choose plants that have adapted to growing in regions where summers are long, hot, and dry. This book reflects the changing balance of flower gardening (as well as vegetable and fruit cultivation) across the globe, as water usage comes under scrutiny. Chapters reflect on the current and emerging ideas as a response to climate change. Australian author Trevor Nottle - who has promoted a Mediterranean approach to garden design for many years - surveys many new plants that nurseries have introduced as a response to the need for plants that flourish in the sun.
