              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.

              Featuring 20 gardens that showcase inspiring solutions to landscaping limited spaces to maximum effect, this book displays elegant structured gardens, whimsical retreats, verandahs and balconies, to potagers brimming with edibles and subtropical hideaways. With more than 300 phot...ographs that capture the essence of the gardens, landscaping features and plants used, this is a book that is both inspiring and practical. From a 1960's gem designed by famous architect Sir Miles Warren for his inner city apartment and office, to a new rooftop garden and another planted only with edibles, this book shows a diversity of responses to spatial constraints. Many gardens have water features, most don't have lawns and a couple of gardeners have created little havens on the berms outside their homes. Extended captions, pull-out boxes and bullet-point solutions with lots of tips and plant suggestions from each gardener conveys information in an accessible manner.

              This book tells the stories of dogs working in assistance roles, helping their human friends in deed when they are most in need. They guide those who cannot see and listen for those who cannot hear. They carry out physical tasks for people with mobility issues, offer emotional su...pport for those struggling to cope with life's challenges and are the ever-watchful companions for those suffering from medical conditions. The dogs in these pages have both saved lives and allowed lives to be fully lived, and the ripples of their goodness spreads far beyond their specific roles. These are tales of courage and heroism, but above all they are love stories showing the remarkable things that can happen when bonds of friendship run deep.
