BOTANIC GARDEN WELLINGTON by Winsome Shepherd. A New Zealand History 1840-1987 A typical Millwood publication, beautifully illustrated, and presented this book is the story one of of Wellington's major landmarks which is a focal point of Thorndon, Kelburn and Northland. Forged from a landscape that topographically presented unprecedented problems it has become a unique New Zealand feature and one of our best known gardens. The history of the garden however, is not so well known and the authors have put this on record for the first time making it a definitive work which is in simple terms is the story of people and a garden. The early colonist's nostalgia for familiar plants difficult to transport alive from their homeland, and settler waiting nearly thirty years for development of land reserved for a Botanic Garden by the New Zealand Company in the 1840's, set the stage for the unfolding story. Those who take pleasure in park settings, in flowers, trees, rare plants, garden design, the wonderful open spaces and the treescapes against a clear Wellington blue sky will treasure this book. More importantly you'll treasure the Wellington Botanic Garden.
