Inspiration and top tips from the popular Gardening Australia presenter.

A gorgeous, inspirational and fun gardening book jam-packed with ideas, tips, projects and great advice based on Sophie's own garden in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia.

Sophie has transformed what was once a dry, windswept cow paddock surrounding her historic stone cottage into a lush garden. But it's not a mere showplace; it's a working garden that reflects all Sophie's passions: a kids' garden, an 'obsessive-compulsive' gardener's treasure trove, a recycled/repurposed garden, a haven for beneficial insects and bees, and a productive garden supplying her family with fruit, vegetables and eggs year-round. It's also a work in progress that everyone can learn from, including:

    * Sophie's 10 guiding principles (including soil, climate and waterwise gardening)
    * Top tips for planning your patch - from design principles to plant selection
    * Sophie's favourite plants - from top trees to great groundcovers
    * The edible garden
    * Garden structures that reduce, reuse and recycle - Sophie's garden has everything from an old tram carriage that now houses chooks to garden sculptures, a pizza oven and practical and striking 'gabion' walls, all made from repurposed materials
    * Kids in the garden
    * Wildlife gardening
