An essential book for cold-climate gardeners, this personal journey of making a garden around a heritage homestead is set in one of the coldest areas of Australia, the New England region of New South Wales. Share garden walks through historic properties, exotic woodlands, traditional English style herbaceous borders and contemporary prairie plantings. Advice from key gardeners of the district is presented as a month by month guide to gardening activities. Kim Woods-Rabbidge brings the perception of an artist and gardener to her sensitive photographs capturing the nuances of changing seasons in many of the finest gardens of New England; from spring bulbs thrusting through icy ground; the relentless sunshine and sudden storms of mid-summer; gentle mellowness of autumn leaves to the austere, frost-rimed winter gardens.
The talk will be accompanied by images from the book.
