Description

Almost 80 years ago Keith Murdoch gave his young bride a wedding present that would be of very special significance throughout the intervening years. A small grazing property on the outskirts of Melbourne, they called it Cruden Farm, and it was here that their family grew up and the garden evolved. A born gardener, with a practical "hands-on" approach, an eye for beauty, and a passion for trees and flowers, Dame Elisabeth calls it her "Garden of a Lifetime". This beautifully colour-illustrated book traces the history of the garden's creation and guides the reader around its spectacular features, while entries for the months of the year give practical hints on upkeep.
