The TEN OUT OF TEN GARDENING SERIES covers a variety of practical gardening topics in handy small-format books that can be kept by one's side while working in the garden. The series was inspired by the author's numerous visits and lecture tours to gardening clubs across the country. With South Africa's variable climate and topography, each region presents its own set of unique challenges that make gardening a truly specialist hobby. But in spite of these problems, almost every South African town boasts exquisite gardens. This series aims to inspire and equip gardeners across the country with the knowledge and know-how to create a beautiful garden of their own. In each book the secrets of successful gardening are summarised in ten key concepts.

Planned topics in the series include:
  • Planning the garden
  • Choosing plants for the garden
  • Preparing the garden for planting
  • Irrigation systems
  • Composting and other types of nourishment
  • Pests and diseases
  • Water features and ponds
  • Creating focal points in the garden
  • Lighting for the garden
  • Pruning
  • Bulbs
  • The winter garden
