As a landscaper who specialises in indigenous, wildlife-friendly gardens, I draw my inspiration from nature and strive to create gardens that contribute to the biodiversity of an area. In my journey, I see spectacular plants and the fascinating creatures that co-exist with them.This plant book shares a constantly growing collection of the marvels that I’ve encountered. I hope it will give you an increased appreciation of our indigenous flora and fauna and spur you into restoring the natural ecology of the area in which you live.
