Beautiful gardens of South Africa / Nancy Gardiner.
Comments  |   Catalogue link


About the book:

One cannot imagine the splendid array of gardens hidden behind walls and houses throughout South Africa; some nestling in the shelter of indigenous forests, some gracing large farms or historic and celebrated homesteads, others in the valleys or on mountain tops, and still others, secret retreats amid the bustle of the city.

Nancy Gardiner has ventured behind the walls of private homes, often to places remote or little known, to uncover the treasures they conceal.

A collection of magnificent full colour photographs displays the startling variety of gardens in different regions, a variety resulting not only from ingenuity of individual designers, but often determined by the climatic and environmental conditions of the region.

About the author:

Nancy Gardiner is a well known gardening expert who has been photographing and writing about gardens for the past twenty years. She is also the author and photographer of : A Visitors guide to gardens in South Africa and the regular contributor to South African Garden and Home.
