"A Garden Forever"

View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Our beautiful and colourful hard cover book entitled "A Garden Forever, Dreams, Stories, Heritage and History" explores the origins of a domestic garden by researching its connection to the area and its history from pre-European times, through days of farming and early settlement up to the present day of ornamental gardening. We believe that this information rich book will be of vital interest to gardeners, but also genealogists and those with an interest in local, social and garden history. We hope it will serve as a template for writing domestic garden history. There are full colour photographs , plans and drawings throughout. The history of a garden has as much to do with people as it does the physical garden so we have included stories and impressions written by family & friends and recorded timelines and the many events which have attracted thousands of garden visitors. This is a picture book filled with colourful photographs, maps and drawings embedding the sense of permanence which comes from realising that our garden will outlive us through its written history as well as its physical survival. Finally this book celebrates the curatorial task of identifying, recording and referencing the thousands of plants in hundreds of genus, species and cultivars in a plant collection which has grown over 22 years. Rather than a dry scientific list the garden inventory has been attempted in a way which makes it more readable and accessible to the home gardener.
