This is an auction for THE ESSENTIAL LAVENDER: GROWING LAVENDER IN NEW ZEALAND, by Virginia McNaughton.

"With their heady perfume and stunning visual appeal, lavenders have been prized by gardeners since ancient times. Lavender is a truly comprehensive study that enables the reader to research and identify lavender species and varieties. With chapters on cultivation, propagation, pests and diseases, and botanical history, this book is as practical as it is authoritative. The many colour photos document recent advances in colour variation that have resulted from intense breeding. Plants now available range from deep purple and lilac to white, cream, pink, and red-violet. With so many hardy and dependable plants to choose from, no lavender enthusiast will want to be without this indispensable book."
