Fruit growing in New Zealand


Date Created



Whitcombe & Tombs: Auckland


Whitcombe and Tombs were New Zealand's leading publishers of household manuals, on both cooking and gardening. At the end of the 1st World War, they began a series of New Zealand Practical Handbooks. For amateur gardeners, the series provided advice on vegetable growing, flower gardening, rock gardening, rose growing, fruit growing, and the cultivation of native plants.

The author of the handbooks on vegetable (1918) and fruit growing (1921) was John Thomas Sinclair (b. 1872), Head Gardener to A. E. G. Rhodes of Te Koraha, Christchurch.
