Describes over 40 Melbourne gardens, each with its own distinct personality. Every garden in the book has it own atmosphere and soul, largely reflecting the passions of the person who created or maintains it. There are clivia walks, ancient English oak trees, rose gardens, exotic courtyards, city rooftop wonderlands and bold, terraced garden beds. Architectural, romantic, sculptural, original and experimental, these gardens - all of them horticulturally rigorous - open up a world of inspiration for gardeners everywhere. 212 pages, hardback. David Wilkinson and Kimbal Baker.
