Review By: The Citizen 1 April 2006

CREATIVE Gardening with Indigenous Plants by Pitta Joffe is an invaluable handbook for South African gardeners. Using a practical approach, and symbols, distribution maps, plant size and flower colour, she leads the reader to the correct plant to choose for the application, whether this be tree, shrub, annual, perennial, climber or water-loving plant. The material is presented in an easy-to-find manner, making it simple to select a suitable plant for any given situation. Trees and shrubs are grouped according to size and shape, and where colour is the primary consideration, plants are arranged according to flower colour. 

The book covers more than 300 plants, all accompanied by stunning full-colour photographs showing the whole plant as well as selected features such as flowers, fruit, leaves and bark. The text comprises a description of each plant, and its uses.
