Author Gwen Pascoe explores the story of botanic gardens established in Melbourne and Victorian towns in the second half of the 19th century.

Utilising many of the Library collections, Pascoe details these gardens' establishment, geographical suitability, maintenance, finance and more. Ultimately, the book asks whether these gardens were botanic or public in nature.
