Product description

Join award-winning horticulturist and landscape designer Myles Baldwin as he explores the coastal gardens of Australia, from the gentle landscape of Victoria's Mornington Peninsula to the sheer cliffs of Sydney's Dover Heights and beyond. On his journey Myles finds a diverse range of gardens, some created by professionals, others by enthusiastic amateurs, but all entirely suited to their location and conditions. Also included is an extensive plant companion - compiled by Myles based on his many years' experience of working on the coast and his conversations with horticulturists - to guide you through the practicalities of gardening by the sea. Accompanied by Sue Stubbs' stunning photography, Australian Coastal Gardens is essential reading for anyone who loves gardens and gardening.
