From the cover: “At long last full use is being made of the opportunities provided by climate and topography to create gardens which are almost as diverse as our unique country.
Within the pages of this book are 33 outstanding gardens, chosen because collectively they show the wide range of gardening styles in New Zealand. The story of each is told by an owner or someone closely connected with the garden, providing a rare insight into its development and maintenance. Included are gardens large and small and of town and country; there is even a garden on remote Chatham Island. Some have been in the same family for generations, others are only a few years old, but those who tend them all share a common bond: the love of gardens and gardening.
Superb colour photographs complement each story, depicting in vivid detail the qualities which make the New Zealander’s garden so special.”
