Gardening, the most practised hobby in the world, survived through time and became a way of life for dedicated gardeners. Enthusiastic gardeners in South Africa are faced with unique challenges across the country's various regions.

'The way we garden - month by month' covers each of the climatic regions in our country. Its contents includes monthly gardening activities for each region as discussed in 'Regular tasks for the month', handy hints on various gardening aspects and the 'Ant' shares its wisdom.

Practical discussions on making compost, pruning, nourishment and control of pests and diseases are some of the 'Topic of the month' content. A 'Plant of the month' closes each monthly chapter with space for the gardener to write down pleasurable memories, notes and reminders.

'The way we garden' also provides more information on the influence of the moon's position in relation to aspects like soil moisture level, best planting time and consequently best growth of plants. The relation of earth elements to star signs and its influence on gardening is informative and gardeners can enjoy a tongue in cheek zodiac personality description of themselves.
