Today when I went to get groceries I indulged myself in another of Phil Dudman's publications: Down-to-Earth Garden Design (2010) - for $9.99! There were others like one by Annette McFarlane too so I thought this info may interest some others from this part of the world. Phil is a fairly regular guest speaker at our local Garden Club and hopefully I'll be able to get this one autographed too. There was a brief review in the Organic Gardener magazine:
http://www.organicgardener.com.au/blogs/book-review-down-earth-garden-design (Recommended price $35!)

I'm settling down to a relaxing read now.
:-D

I didn't want to be tempted further - had already picked up some packets of seeds and another propagator! But I just Googled & the others were probably only 3 Annette McFarlane books as listed in this link. I had no idea until I saw them although I do get an online newsletter.

Both authors would be more familiar to gardeners in Northern NSW & Southern QLD I think.
