FRENSHAM: A New Zealand Garden

ISBN: 9780995105324

Authors: Margaret LongJuliet Nicholas (photographer)    Publisher: Quentin Wilson Publishing

In this lavishly illustrated book, Canterbury gardener, Margaret Long, tells the fascinating story of Frensham, considered one of New Zealand’s finest gardens. As though we are right there with her, the reader is taken on a tour through the seasons, listening as we go to Margaret’s thoughts and insights about why this plant was placed here or that tree there, what is behind her choices not just of plantings but also structures, materials, colours. This very personal and yet informative perspective on thirty years of gardening with passion makes for a delightful book to be treasured and shared. Highly acclaimed garden photographer, Juliet Nicholas, has “lived” with Frensham for an entire year, photographing its changes through the months and the seasons and providing a unique insight into the growth and development of these beautiful gardens, as well as capturing one of the most frequently written comments in Frensham’s visitors’ book: ‘The garden is so peaceful’.
