Margaret Long developed a life-changing passion for gardening 30 years ago after a garden tour of the UK, followed by numerous local visits and the development of her own garden in Canterbury, known as Frensham Gardens.

She has since gone back to the UK, running guided tours to its best gardens, has published The Gardener's Journal, and edits the newsletter of the New Zealand branch of the International Dendrology Society.

Her monthly newsletter, Writings from Frensham, is read by enthusiasts all over the world, and she's just released a coffee table book that chronicles the year in her backyard, called  Frensham: A New Zealand Garden.   

The book features photographs by Juliet Nicholas.
