REVIEWED Stephanie Matheson
Whether you’re a beginner gardener or a keen professional, this book will make you want to pick up your gardening tools and get planting. It features 150 flowers that are widely grown in New Zealand, presented in an A to Z format.
Each flower section provides information on the different varieties, plant care and maintenance, planting ideas and loads of stunning photos. There is also a chapter on pests and problems, a handy garden diary and an introduction to growing flowers in general – did you know, for example, that if you want your bush roses to be in bloom for a special occasion, you simply prune them back at least six weeks before the event?
