Few have advanced the art of gardening in this country as much as Gordon Collier. New Zealand’s most passionate plantsman and garden designer extraordinaire needs no introduction to garden lovers, but in this beautiful celebration of three of his most famous gardens friends, colleagues and fellow gardeners pay tribute to the man behind the legend. Tītoki Point, Anacapri and The White House gardens perfectly display the talent and vision of Gordon Collier down the years as he worked tirelessly to create living works of art. The sheer beauty of his work on display here will undoubtedly further inspire creative gardening in this country and become an important reference for students of garden design. As the man himself has said, a good garden should be judged not by the rarity or the expense of the plant inhabitants but by how those plants are assembled, one with the other. And how that was done in these three memorable gardens is nothing short of magical.

How to Grow an Athlete: From Playground to Podium is every parent’s dream ‘go to’ book to help maximise your child’s growth and development and improve both sporting and academic performance. Exploring a wide range of health, food, sporting and academic advice, this ground-breaking book is by well-known dietitian and nutritionist Lea Stening who has worked in paediatrics and sports nutrition for many years. Team culture is key to providing all children with a supportive enviroment in which to thrive, to be confident, fit and strong. And team culture includes family, school and community, not just your child’s particular sporting code. Here’s how to help your child carry a love for exercise and sport well into their adult life. Lea has worked in all areas of school sporting codes and also nationally at high performance and academy levels including New Zealand Cricket, New Zealand Rowing, and New Zealand Paralympian sports. And although How to Grow an Athlete: From Playground to Podium focuses on children and sports nutrition, the basic themes that encourage healthy eating can be applied to the whole family.
