KwaZulu-Natal is My Garden



KwaZulu-Natal is My Garden

By Jacqueline Kalley

KwaZulu-Natal is My Garden provides a fascinating insight into the differing ways in which people choose to use their space. Whether it be tiny or stretching across the countryside; high in the mountain regions, in the superb gardening conditions of the Midlands, or dreaming in the coastal warmth; gardeners with little cottages or grand mansions collectively organising their surroundings according to location, soil diversity and climatic conditions – and their personal preference. Thirty-eight gardens have been selected to show something of the wide spectrum of gardens in the province; their stories inspire, entertain and educate. Beautifully illustrated, these gardens and their relationship to the homes on the properties are ample proof that KwaZulu-Natal is indeed our Garden Province.

Jacqueline Kalley co-edited the award-winning Veld, Vlei and Rose Gardens: An Inspiration for South African Gardeners published by Otterley Press in 2011.

Eric Cornhill is the chief photographer of this lavishly illustrated book.
