New Issue of Australian Garden History

Spring is here, so why not relax in the garden and catch up on the latest issue of Australian Garden History, available electronically to New South Wales residents with a registered library card.

In this issue, you can read about landscape designer Glen Wilson and his callistemons, explore changes to the Australian backyard with Tony Hall, or consider the place of pagan traditions in national parks management.

If you’d prefer a longer read, you can check out some of our latest ebooks:
