A comprehensive gardening guide for people living in South Australia, the book has a strong emphasis on plants and techniques which have a proven success rate in that state. "Be it on talkback radio, at garden club meetings, or more particularly in my role as a home garden consultant, I am constantly asked about the various problems home gardeners are encountering in their gardens," Sophie writes in her book. "'From the Ground Up' has been developed in the hope that it can answer many questions for a broader audience and, at the same time, I trust that it will help ease some of the pain and frustration from their gardening experience." Five years in the making, 'From The Ground Up' is a collaborative effort utilising the recommendations of many South Australian plant experts, combined with Sophie's vast plant knowledge and experience. Packed full of magnificent photographs, From the Ground Up will allow you to visually identify everything from the best plants for your garden to the pests and diseases causing your plants grief.

Sophie's passion for plants and gardening was passed on to her by her parents and she cut her teeth working in the family plant nursery. Sophie is the South Australian presenter for the ABC's Gardening Australia and she writes for the Gardening Australia Magazine. She also writes the Gardening column for the Sunday Mail and the Adelaide Hills Weekender. She is a popular guest speaker and she has spoken at hundreds of gardening and lifestyle events, garden clubs and plant societies. Sophie has consulted for a wide variety of South Australian gardens. With a very strong focus on appropriate plant selection, she likes to help her clients develop waterwise gardens that have colour and interest for the whole twelve months of the year. Her enthusiasm and passion for plants and gardening appeals to people of all ages. pp. 256 illusts Second Edition #1218 (Small stamp on fep)
