I would like to thank Storey Publishing for providing me with a free ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an open and honest review.Living in the Adelaide Hills as I do, this is the perfect book of gardening advice for my area. We are a dry, arid area for most of the year and our climate soars into the low to mid 40’s Celsius in the summer and drops to just below zero Celsius in the winter. It is a hot, dry place for most of the year and wanting to keep a garden for ourselves, as well as the native animals, birds and insects while not paying through the roof for water is hard. Which is why I wanted to read ‘Gardening with less water’ and why I absolutely LOVED it! I want an Olla… actually I want several! Hubby was reading the ARC over my shoulder a lot and we have some odds and ends around the gardening we hope to play with shortly to see how we can improve our garden on less water – all thanks to this book.To list some of the great information I got from this book, the first few chapters explore the different ways to water plants. You have your olla, wick, drip feed and so much more. And as much as I enjoyed the step by step instructions on how to make these watering devices out of objects readily at hand, I do wish they discussed grey water more. As in, which forms of watering in this section were better suited to the use of grey water, and which weren’t? Yes the use of grey water was touched in chapters later, and sometimes almost mentioned during the different types of water saving devices… but not enough for me to feel comfortable in using it with any of the new devices except maybe in deep pipe irrigation system.
