Description

A large-format, stunningly illustrated book, celebrating 34 of the country's most inspirational gardens. Kristin Lammerting travelled the length of New Zealand with photographer Ferdinand von Luckner to explore the gardens and talk to the garden owners about the source of their inspiration. The styles of the gardens selected are very diverse, from opulent landscaping in a traditional style to cutting-edge minimalism. Just as varied as the styles is the stunning diversity of plants on display. Most of the gardens - including Kristin's own award-winning Palmco Garden in Kerikeri - are open to the public.show more
