 About the Book 

One of South Africa’s best-known and well-loved gardeners shares the history and stories behind Old Nectar, the famous South African garden that has been visited and admired for decades. Detailing the garden’s humble and inauspicious beginnings—including a neglected property that lacked modern conveniences such as electricity and indoor plumbing—this keepsake discusses how the garden gained worldwide acclaim for its variety and year-round splendor. This beautifully designed book, filled with some 200 exquisite photographs, shows off the several different gardens that make up Una van der Spuy’s creation, and presents the range of flowers, plants, and trees through the various seasons of the year.
