Vintage book Complete Australian Gardener Illustrated by Mellor Olive 1950s ylbt15


This is a fabulous 1950s book, “Complete Australian Gardener Illustrated” by Olive Mellor. I would say it is circa 1950s to 60’s due to the photographs of type of garden to match the house that has been built. It goes into great detail which has a list in the contents : laying a new garden, Framework if a garden, Key plan for an irregular block, soil treatment and prep, the lawn, trees for aus gardens, shurbs, annual plants, ferennials, fleshy rooted plants, the rose garden, water in the garden, rock wall and rockeries, hedges , wall shrubs, my favorite ” THE MINIATURE CACTUS GARDEN”, vegetable gardening, growing mushrooms, the orchard, disease and pest control, glossery etc.
