Just as drawing a garden plan each year helps you remember where things were growing, taking notes can help you avoid making the same mistakes again, or ensure that your good results can be reproduced in future years. And you can really spend a lot less time in your garden and still have something that comes out really beautifully.

Pros: This guy is basically the permaculture Macgyver, and he finds a way to make everything work with ingenuity and limited resources in an otherwise unforgiving climate. Bulbs are great for bringing in seasonal colour, and not just in spring. Pros: Everything is very accessible and written to appeal to both suburban permaculturists the target audience as well as larger scale landowners trying to intensively manage a small area of land. Saving garden plans for the past two or three years means that you don't have to rely on memory alone. For each combo, there's a "Why This Works" section along with a "Meet The Players" section showing each plant with highlights.

If you're lucky you may have space for both but then it's worth thinking about where each should be placed — what time of day does each area get sun? After flowers open, remove the row cover so bees can pollinate the flowers. At four o'clock on a winter's evening your garden needs to look as 'wow' as it does at high noon in summer. The book proposes a bit of a hybrid system, as it does still advocate row crops and the use of machine harvesting while sticking to the basic tenets of permaculture. Garden designer Nan Sterman will help you bring bright color to a low-water garden.
