Author(s): Edna Walling
1937 - 1948
Edna Walling is synonymous with Australian garden design. Although she died in 1973, her love of blending native plants and exotics, thyme lawns, informal garden pools, handbuilt paths, and integrating the house with a serene yet untamed garden, is still influential in garden design today.
Between 1937-1948, Edna wrote a regular column 'Letters to Garden Lovers' for the Australian Home Beautiful magazine. This book is a compilation of these fascinating letters. Intimate and inspirational, Edna's letters reflect her personal experience, practical advice and passion for plant groupings, garden design, colour, paving and rockwork, as well as her enthusiasm to encourage readers to create a garden full of surprises.
