Manual of gardening in New Zealand
Whitcombe & Tombs: Auckland
After Murphy's death, David Tannock, the Superintendent of Gardens and Reserves, Dunedin, took over his role. His first book, Manual of Gardening in New Zealand appeared in 1916. Appointed Curator at the Dunedin Botanic Gardens in 1903 following training at Kew and work in the West Indies, Tannock quickly built up contacts with other professional horticulturalists and keen amateurs. Several of these contributed sections to the Manual. An enlarged edition was published in 1921 and a substantial revision with a rather bland cover came out in 1934 under the title Practical Gardening in New Zealand.
