"This is no ordinary book on drought-tolerant plants, but the accumulated wisdom of twenty years spent learning about the Mediterranean climate, and its plants and soils. The learning was not the casual process of one warned by municipal authorities that water is becoming scarce, but the urgent seeking for knowledge of an intelligent gardener entirely dependent on rainfall. . . . The pictures, too, are delightfully different from those we have come to expect in books on waterwise gardening."--"Pacific Horticulture"About the Author:
Heidi Gildemeister converted a maquis-covered western Mediterranean landscape into a thriving ten-acre garden and became a pioneer of waterwise gardening in the Mediterranean region. A gardener of long and varied experience, she has gardened in Switzerland, the Andes, and on the Peruvian coast. She lectures worldwide and has contributed to The Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening. She is a member of the Botanical Society of South Africa, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and the International Dendrology Society and is a founding member and former president of the Mediterranean Garden Society.
