New and familiar voices present the diversity of Australian gardens in these witty, sad, and informative contributions. Complimented by a wealth of garden images, plans, sketches, drawings, paintings, engravings, and photographs, these gardens are portrayed through a variety of sources, including previously unpublished letters and diary entries of ordinary people reveling in or struggling with their gardens, informed advice from newspapers and magazines, and extracts from Australian fiction, non-fiction, gardening catalogs, and planting guides.
