The enchanted garden by Paul Bangay( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enchanted garden is the story of how renowned landscape designer Paul Bangay came to build the garden of St Ambrose Farm, against the blue background of Mount Macedon - of how a long-deserted schoolhouse and its bare grounds cast an instant spell on him, even though he hadn't intended to buy a country place. The breathtaking garden of vistas and green rooms that Paul Bangay designed, and photographer Simon Griffiths so evocatively captures, will weave a similar spell on readers. Yet, as Paul shows so frankly, enchantment is not without its price: his book is as much about the difficulties of large-scale gardening and the mistakes he's made as it is about his grand vision for St Ambrose Farm and the masterly way in which he set about achieving it.St Ambrose Farm, like all good gardens, is not simply the sum of its plants and materials. It is a garden sensitive to a country setting with strong community and gardening traditions, and a garden woven with amusing and poignant memories of' family, friends and influences

Cruden Farm : garden diaries by Michael Morrison( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cruden Farm was given to the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch in 1928 as a wedding present from her husband Sir Keith Murdoch. The farm at Langwarrin, about 50 kilometres south-east of Melbourne, was a place she cherished throughout her long life. The beautiful garden she created there with gardener Michael Morrison is one of Australia's finest. In 1984 Michael began to keep garden diaries, a practice that endures to this day. He writes of the plants that have thrived and those they've lost, of terrible heat and freak storms, of escaped cows and memorable parties. The diaries recount the plans he and Dame Elisabeth hatched, the triumphs and tensions, the sheer fun of making a garden together. In an age preoccupied with selfies and spotlight chasers, Michael Morrison's diaries remind us of a different way of living - of more than forty years spent quietly but passionately dedicated to one special garden and its unique owner
