From the jacket flap: "Fully illustrated with prints, paintings, diagrams and photographs, 'Cottage Gardens' traces the heritage of Australia's cottage gardens from early colonial times to the great goldrushes; the first suburban sprawls; the cottage revivals of the twentieth century, up to the present rediscovery of Old World traditions. Not only does this volume present the subject in terms of social history, but it sets out in clear detail all the plans, plant lists, pictorial matter and useful research which may assist in the careful and loving restoration of old gardens and in the creation of new gardens with a traditional or Old World character . . . Plans and patterns for period gardens, borders, fences, topiary, arches, garden houses and furniture are all delightfully illustrated."
