Description

Cottage to mansion, balcony to botanic garden, Planting Dreams will change the way you think about Australian gardens.

Acclaimed garden historian Richard Aitken explores the fascinating environmental and social influences that have helped produce a unique gardening culture in Australia – from thwarted attempts to 'tame' the environment to the streamlined angles of modernist design.

Drawing on the unparalleled collections of the State Library of New South Wales, the book showcases Australian garden making in all its richness and diversity through a stunning and intriguing mix of paintings, sketches, photographs and prints, from popular culture to high art.
