Flower gardening in New Zealand
Whitcombe & Tombs: Auckland
James Young (1862-1934) was Curator of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens from 1908-1933, having trained in England and worked in Victoria, Australia. As an expert on roses—the Christchurch Botanic Gardens rosery was probably the largest in Australasia—James Young also wrote the series' handbook on rose growing (ca. 1919).
