Australia’s best gardening bookshop

Luckily for me my favourite gardening bookshop is in Sydney, about 15 minutes walk from where I live in Chippendale.

It’s Floriligium at 65 Derwent St, Glebe.

Inside the cool, quiet old sandstone building you’ll find a wonderful, complete coverage of all things that grow and if you ask for help your visit will be made richer by talking to the knowledgeable owner, Gil Teague.

So I’m giving it a shameless and proud plug and suggesting that you either drop in or check out their xmas catalogue which can be downloaded as a pdf here.  And I confess they sell my two books there, Sustainable Food, and Sustainable House.

Go the plants,
