By Nicholas, JulietBy Allison, Sue
Magnificent gardens of different types from all around New Zealand, with entertaining stories on their origin, inspiration and development - all stunningly photographed. From lush regenerating native bush, through formal gardens and heritage fruit trees, to community gardens and ...a dry garden in Central Otago, there is a place here to inspire everyone. The stories of their inspirational founders and developers are told simply and informatively, and bring the gardens to life. Located from Butler Point, across the harbour from Mangonui in Aotearoa's far north, down to Central Otago and Southland, the varying terrains and climates affect which plants flourish, and the exchange of ideas between the gardeners keep things vibrant and ever-changing.Several of the gardens have been developed by siblings, partners or families, all drawing strength and ideas from each other. After reading this book you won't know which urge is stronger - to get outside and do some gardening, or plan a tour of inspirational gardens of New Zealand.Read more
