Wilkinson has just released his book 'Grand Melbourne Gardens' and they'll be available for sale. A celebration of gardens old and new, small and large, grand in their horticultural ambitions and inspiration. Gardens have been the heart of Melbourne with botanic gardens, and green city spaces and our tree-lined streets with glimpses of beautiful homes peeping through.
Rocking atmosphere and soul, the gardens in the book reflect the passions of the person who created or maintains it. These self-appointed custodians of treasured spaces generously share their gardening experience with you the reader, be it vegetable gardens, clivia walks, ancient English oak trees, rose gardens, rambling exotic courtyards, city rooftop wonderlands or bold stepped garden beds. Don't miss this talk by the author himself.
