But healso suggests the varieties of spring blossom trees that will provide the best succession of blooming overmany weeks, advice that would largely bewasted todayas blossom trees, whichare no longer trendy,battle to be given even the occasional spot in the 21st centurygarden. In August’s second week, we’re exhorted to plant toattract birds,an activity that’s still verymuchin favour. But therecommended honey-eater-attractingabeliasand fuchsiashave been largely replaced by modern grevilleavarieties (like grevillea superb, pictured).

In week four, he gently chidesan older friend who’s been complaining that modern (1970s) plantsaren’tashardy and pest-resistantas the older varieties. Sounds familiar, butWaratahadvises sagely that ‘‘. . . the fightagainst pests and diseases, pestilenceand drought is as oldasman himself’’.
