Biography of a passionate New Zealand gardener

The golden age of gardening owes much to the endeavours of a few key people, including Gertrude Jekyll, Vita Sackwell West, Australia's Edna Walling and, in New Zealand, Nancy Steen.

Born in 1898. Nancy displayed an early talent for gardening and art. During her lifetime she embraced a range of activities in these two complementary fields, including working as a studio artist in the 1920s, exhibiting regularly at the Auckland Society of Art and developing and landscaping her own impressive garden.

THE CHARM OF NANCY STEEN is a delightful and enlightening biography of a gardener. Illustrated throughout with Nancy's woodcuts and a beautiful illustrated alphabet featuring New Zealand native plants, it's a charming tribute to a celebrated gardener.
