The mostly edible garden of Babylonstoren in the Drakenstein Valley of the Cape Winelands has become a must-see for all visitors to the region. Not simply because it is beautiful, but because it offers a mesmerising range of experiences to both the day tripper and hotel guest, encompassing history, insight into the workings of a productive farm and food garden, and how the land can be cultivated along diversifi ed yet integrated principles.

As co-author Franchesca Watson says, ‘The way Babylonstoren expresses itself visually is inordinately charming. Every material is simple and intrinsic, nothing is smart or clever or tacky, everything is understandable and fi lled with sincerity; it is a generous place.’

This visually stunning coffee-table book covers every aspect of the 3.5-hectare garden: its design, Cape Dutch history, plants, cultivation methods and the people behind it all.

Creative Combinations In Today's Gardens (Paperback): Suzette Stephenson, Louise van Rooyen Creative Combinations In Today's Gardens (Paperback)
Suzette Stephenson, Louise van Rooyen
R196 Discovery Miles 1 960 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Gardening is every bit as creative as painting flowers in watercolour. And it is in bringing together various elements that a lot of the creativity lies.

This book gives you expert guidance to achieve this, with loads of examples from gardens all over the country. It shows you that a garden is in essence a combination of shapes, textures, colours and growth forms – the ultimate combination of combinations. Learn how to combine plants that are mutually supportive and create their own harmony or combine plants and elements for sameness, or for contrast. By bringing together selected plants and garden elements you create a more beautiful, more arresting and more powerful visual presentation than what could be done by using any of the combined elements individually. The creative scope and different permutations made possible by combinations cannot be quantified – what you can imagine, you can combine.

This book looks at combinations in four categories: colour, shape and form, texture, and the specific environment of the garden and its plants. More than 230 magnificent photographs will charm and inspire you and the information will show you how to use combinations skilfully and wisely. Maximise the appeal of your garden by making the most of its combinations.

In hierdie boek wys twee kenners jou hoe om dit reg te kry, met honderde voorbeelde uit tuine van regoor die land. Dit wys jou dat 'n tuin basies 'n kombinasie is van kleur, vorm, tekstuur en groeiwyses - in wese 'n kombinasie van kombinasies. Leer hoe om plante te kombineer wat mekaar aanvul en hul eie harmonie skep en hoe om plante en elemente te kombineer vir enersheid, of vir andersheid. Deur uitgesoekte plante en elemente saam te gebruik, skep jy 'n prentjie wat mooier, treffender en meer skouspelagtig is as wat elk van die gekombineerde elemente individueel sou kon doen. Die skeppende omvang van kombinasiemoontlikhede kan nie gekwantifiseer word nie - as jy jou 'n kombinasie kan voorstel, kan jy dit skep. In Kreatiewe kombinasies word in vier kategoriee na kombinasies gekyk: kleur, vorm en groeiwyse, tekstuur en die tuin en plante se spesifieke omgewing. Daar is meer as 230 foto's om jou te bekoor en inspireer en al die nodige inligting om slim en vindingryk met kombinasies te werk. Vergroot jou tuin se trefkrag deur die beste moontlike gebruik van die kombinasies daarin.

Ever wondered how to make a garden attractive in December? Or what to do with that corner by the dustbin? Answers to these questions can be found in this compact and charming book of tips for the green-fingered, accompanied by Heath Robinson's highly inventive and humorous cartoons. First published in 1938, the book gives an insight into gardening trends on the eve of the Second World War while also addressing common concerns faced by gardeners. It features many typically elaborate contraptions such as the Combined Telescopic Spaderake for digging and raking at the same time, the Inebriate Roller for making wobbly garden paths and the Osoeezi Slugsticker. While some are patently ridiculous - a lawn is de-thistled and resown with the help of a barrel of grass seed strapped onto a small donkey - others are before their time, such as a special pump that can divert your bathwater into your garden hose, a contraption that is not wildly dissimilar to gadgets on the market today. Finally, the growing of vegetables inspires some sage advice: `with the right kind of upbringing, a marrow will attain astonishing dimensions, and can be used for boasting purposes.' Poking gentle fun at a British obsession with a detailed illustration on almost every page, this book will delight both aspiring and experienced gardeners alike.

A handful of small trees - plum, apple and pear - some raspberry, blackberry and currant bushes and even strawberries in pots suddenly joined my patch of potatoes, beans and peas. These fruits became the backbone of my home baking, the stars in my cakes and pastries and even inspired the odd pot of jam. More than this, I started to use them in new ways too, from a weekday supper of pork chops with cider and apples to a Chinese Sunday roast with spiced plum sauce. The hot family puddings and fruit ices we had always loved so much suddenly took on a delicious new significance.'

Hierdie plante verg minder werk as uitheemses, het gewoonlik minder water nodig, wil byna geen chemiese kunsmis en insekdoders he nie, en kos heelwat minder omdat jy hulle nie kort-kort hoef te vervang nie. Elke plant in die titel is spesiaal gekies omdat dit blom, soms besadig, maar meer dikwels baldadig. Benewens 'n nabyfoto en volledige beskrywing van byna 100 plantspesies is hier interessante inligting oor grondvoorbereiding, voeding, voortplanting en instandhouding.
