The Self-sustaining Garden The Guide to Matrix Planting
By Peter Thompson
The harder gardeners work, the more the problems seem to multiply. However, if we allow them to, plants can do much of the hard work we have been taught is an essential part of gardening. Originally published in 1997, this new, updated edition explores the theme of combining plants successfully into self-governing communities to create naturalistic, low-maintenance gardens. The universal principles of 'matrix' gardening are explained, along with case studies, including three NEW ZEALAND examples, showing detailed applications and general chapters on soil health, biological controls in the garden, pools and wetlands, shrubs and perennials and how to pull it all together with a strong, self-sustaining design.
