Traditional Gardens in Australia by Peter Cuffley – creating a Period Garden


In this highly informative and practical book, Peter Cuffley, gives us an insight into the origins of Australia’s gardening traditions. He also covers all aspects of restoring an old garden, creating a new one in period style, or perhaps simply taking inspiration from the past. This book offers a wealth of information including the ideas and design principles of such great gardeners as Gertrude Jekyll and Australia’s Edna Walling. Practical advice is offered on such subjects as researching the period and particular site of an old garden, drawing up plans, planting and constructing, laying brick paths and long term considerations. Extensive plant lists devised from 19th century gardening catalogues are included.
