In short, it's a book for people who want to know why it's important to reassess the way we garden rather than simply doing what we've always done.--Josh Byrne "Gardening Australia " "This book concentrates on the ideal of sustainability and how we can incorporate it into our everyday gardening habits. It's not a picture book to flick through, skimming over the text in a casual way. Rather it should be treated as a serious manual to consult as you shape your garden."--Your Garden "If you're serious about taking a more environmentally responsible approach to gardening, then Sustainable Gardens, penned by botanists Roger Spencer and Rob Cross, is a worthy reference source."--Backyard & Garden Design Ideas
