Ralph Ballinger has spent much of his life in the breeding, selection and testing of flowers, growing flower seed crops and for thirty years flowers commercially under glass. This is a practical book written for home gardeners and the common names have been used mainly for identification of plants. Nearly 200 flowers have been described covering mainly annuals and perennials used for bedding and herbaceous borders. The first section of the book covers the planning of the flower garden plus the raising and propagation of plants. There is a chapter on small glasshouses and special reference is given to growing flowers for the house and the drying of flowers. The second section is an alphabetical listing of these flowers with a description of the propagation of each. Photographs alongside the text assist in the identification of these flowers.

A modern day Downton Abbey
Over a twelve month period the author and his wife bought to an extremely proper and aristocratic household a down to earth mentality which confused and intrigued their employers. Age old ways tied this Kiwi pair in knots and caused sleepless nights but at best provided some of the funniest experiences of their lives.
Their exceedingly wealthy employers couldn't boil water or sweep leaves. The Laredos could, so a punt was taken to hire them by Mr and Mrs Worlingham who required everything to be picked up and put down for them.
Shoes had to be polished, clothes laid out and drinks poured. The Laredos acted as marriage counsellors, relationship consultants for their teenage daughters, truce negotiators for family feuds and issues concerning staff rivalry. Acting as go betweens and smoke screens became skills they never knew they had.
Aside from life at Chantborough Court there were also local village people who curried favour with this new domestic couple from down under hoping they would open doors to the 'Big House' that most villagers only dreamt of passing through. They became the subject of gossip, personality hang-ups and intrigue - learning to be discreet was everything. Ultimately friendships were forged that have held fast, but getting established and becoming accepted was often testy, frequently funny beyond words and ultimately too good to have missed.
