From Pasture to Paradise

The Story of Trotts Garden

This unique book is beautifully illustrated throughout with over 180 photographs of the garden and its plants. Alan Trott not only describes his garden and its plants and the way the garden came about, but illustrates both the garden and its plants with his wonderful photography.

Trotts Garden is a Garden of International Significance. Alan guides you, the reader, through the garden from its very beginning. It is now recognised as one of New Zealand’s finest gardens, and Alan describes his plants as though they were his children.
