Grow­ing Food the Ital­ian Way by Fabian Capo­molla (Pan Macmil­lan, $44.99)

Sim­plic­ity is at the heart of Ital­ian gar­den­ing, as the Melbourne-based founder of The Hun­gry Gar­dener learnt when he packed up his wife and kids, and headed to Tus­cany for 12 months. The idea was to re­dis­cover his roots and the book fol­lows Fabian’s ex­pe­ri­ence of turn­ing a small com­mu­nity plot into a pro­duc­tive veg­etable gar­den — and shares his de­tailed ad­vice for do­ing the same here. Plant Style: How to Greenify Your Space by Alana Langan and Jac­qui Vi­dal. (Thames and Hud­son, $34.99) The au­thors of this mod­ern style guide are the founders of Ivy Muse, the Melbourne-based botan­i­cal wares brand that helped cat­a­pult in­door plants and plant stands back into fash­ion. Fea­tur­ing in­spir­ing im­ages by pho­tog­ra­pher An­netttte O’brien, the book is a one-stop re­source for those want­ing to in­cor­po­rate green­ery into ev­ery room. Plus, there’s a handy grow­ing guide to in­door plants at the back.
