150 INDESTRUCTIBLE PLANTS

by JODI RIGBY

For more Gardening and Permaculture books click here

Large softcover book with lots of full-colour photos throughout, 304 pages. Published 2010

Putting a plant in the ground and watching it flower for the first time - or see it double in size or produce fruits the size of tennis balls - is such an exciting thing. It includes great feature plants that require very little looking after and still look like prima donnas, and wonderful flowering plants that will happily bloom and brighten up the months without needing to be molly coddled.

Being plant savvy is all about choosing the right plants for your garden's soil type and climatic region - and there’s no point wasting hundreds of dollars on water-hungry plants when you have no intention of watering more than once a week for five minutes while the dinner’s on.

It’s about gardening smarter - so that, with minimal care, you can reap all the fantastic rewards.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction
  • Fabulous foliage
  • Plants for frost
  • Feature plants
  • Growing flowers
  • By the sea
  • On the shady side
  • In the tropics
  • Plants for indoors
  • On the balcony
  • Plant index

About the author

Jody Rigby knows how to do gardens. Having been involved in the construction of over 250 in her career so far, she has a keen eye for detail and knows how to swing a mattock. Her research experience for several media programmes and magazines is priceless and she has also developed relationships with a wealth of suppliers throughout the industry. From the consultation stage through to construction she provides a very personalised, passionate approach to helping you achieve the garden you've always wanted.

Jody has been involved in television for over ten years. Her first role as Horticulturist in Channel Nine's 'Backyard Blitz' lasted seven years, saw her and the team achieve seven Logies and build over 200 gardens. Her next project was for Channel Seven's 'The Outdoor Room' alongside her friend Jamie Durie where themed gardens were created, inspired by locations around the world. She was also head researcher for this programme. Most recently Jody has been one of three hosts on the Lifestyle Channel’s 'Garden Angels' alongside Melissa King and Linda Ross, bringing very accessible garden basics to the screen each week.
