My book "Kitsgids vir die Knapsaktuinier" and the English translation "Short cut to easy gardening" published by Tafelberg Publishers Cape Town,   was a best seller and the second edition was published within months of the first publication.

My book on vegetables and herbs "Kweek jou eie groente en kruie" and "Grow your own vegetables and herbs" published by Human and Rousseau is an accessible guide to an economical, hassle-free kitchen garden containing expert information to put back the joy into this rewarding pastime. It contains handy hints for people living in flats and town houses to grow vegetables and herbs in a limited space.  But important it shows the beauty of these plants and how they can enhance the beauty of any garden!

Both books contain various interesting garden plans to help garden enthusiasts of various intentions and ambitions.

A decorative combination of vegetables and shrubs is the ideal solution for those who can’t decide whether to have an ornamental garden or to grow vegetables for the pot.
