In My Own Backyard is an inspirational book for city gardeners. Creating your own urban garden can be a rich and most rewarding adventure, though naturally it is not without its challenges and surprises. In this chatty, personal garden memoir and practical guide Marion Poynter tells how in 1985 she began to transform the generous backyard of an inner Melbourne Victorian cottage into a natural oasis. This is an endeavour she continues to this day. And for nearly forty years she has been rewarded by her garden’s bountiful harvest of abundant food and the natural beauty she has created. Marion’s garden is a wonder and the delight she finds in its great variety is matched by her great enthusiasm for crafting, flower-arranging, beekeeping, cooking and preserve-making.
