Weekends for
Garden Lovers
in New Zealand

Dennis Greville
New Holland
$NZ29.95

APART from getting out in our own gardens, nothing delights us more than delving into those of our fellow gardeners. This compact guide from Christchurch aficionado Dennis Greville is a good pointer to where to go on those "lost weekends".

The book wends through open gardens from the far north to the deep south, region by region. A useful general introduction kicks off each region. But perhaps the nicest touch is the separate listings of regional garden suppliers, garden-based accommodation and calendar highlights.

Timely for the holiday season and guaranteed to be a well-thumbed addition to the car glovebox, Weekends for Garden Lovers in New Zealand has everything you need to plan the ultimate itinerary. An excellent gift idea for overseas friends planning a trip down under as well.
