If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Waterwise Plants and Gardening outlines the six vital principles you need to apply to create a garden that is beautiful as well as waterwise. These are: Reducing areas of lawn; Grouping plants according to their water needs; Using dry-tolerant plants; Maintaining your garden; Using mulch; and Watering efficiently. The book describes 400 dry-tolerant plants grouped as Trees; Shrubs; Bulbs, annuals and perennials; and Climbers and groundcovers. Every plant is illustrated with a beautiful colour photograph and includes a description and notes on cultivation, including the plant’s ultimate height and spread.
The plants are also rated and grouped according to the level of dry-tolerance – whether high, medium or low – so that it is easy to apply the principle of grouping plants together that have the same water requirement. To help select just the right plant for every situation the book also includes 15 comprehensive plant lists for: Windbreaks; Coastal gardens; Shade; Sandy soil; Clay soil; Saline soils; Annuals; Herbs; Grasses; Fruit and Nut Trees; Dry dormancy; Perfume; Attracting birds; Cut flowers; and Living Mulch. This book will help you achieve a beautiful garden that not only uses water wisely, but also creates a sustainable, resilient, low maintenance, yet colourful, environment for you to enjoy year-round.
