OK - there's 2 editions of this book - one for the northern hemisphere and one for here. On eBay the northern hemisphere copies are around $25 each (not $125 for the local ones!). So to save my wondering, I've reserved the Library copy. My guess is the northern hemisphere edition would apply more to the growing conditions than the recipes. Recently I bought River Cottage Veg Every Day only to find it contains mostly high-end gourmet recipes, way beyond anything I could or want to make. Any takers for a cheap almost-new copy? ;-)

Mine arrived to-day, all 3 kilos of it! Following advice from a member here (wish I could find the post to say "thank you" in person), I bought mine from the Book Depository in England. Posted by air mail it cost me a grand total of $A24.08. They must buy the remainders for $1 each to make it worthwhile as resellers. Whether it's got info for the northern hemisphere or not really does not matter. The growing conditions and recipes will be the same.

I bought my copy a while ago from the Book Depository, it is a great book and quite useable in our climate.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
