  • Volume 3 Turning off the tap' sustainability imperatives, historic
           watering regimes, and historic landscape futures
    • Abstract: Jones, David
      This paper surveys the dilemma faced by the heritage-registered Adelaide Park Lands in terms of changing watering regimes, Agenda 21 sustainability policy objectives, climate change realities, tree senescence, biodiversity health, and raises some topical questions as to how to care for a significant cultural landscape when water, climate change and tree senescence will become key dilemmas.

  • Volume 3 Tasmanian Historic Gardens and their 'prospects'; then and now
    • Abstract: Sheridan, Gwenda
      This essay is about garden and landscape spaces in Tasmania. The island's heritage evaluation in respect of a collective, aggregated garden heritage and historic landscape assessment has not kept pace alongside other Australian states. It was 1987 when Phyl Frazer Simons completed Historic Tasmanian Gardens and still in 2008 there has been no systematic overview of the importance of Tasmania's cultural landscapes. It is hoped that this contribution will begin to rectify this in respect of the living and evolved heritage fabric of the island and make a small contribution towards understanding the value of the island's heritage landscapes. The essay draws on primary research into landscape, private and public garden spaces in Tasmania, undertaken in the last ten years. The research has yielded significant information in respect of place, plant importation, historic plant value, and specific species' significance. Some broad historic landscape patterns have come to light while important figures in Tasmanian landscape and garden history have also emerged. However an immense amount of work remains to be done.

  • Volume 3 Conserving significance within a context of change: A case study
           of the Glenferrie sports ground and grace Park Precinct, Hawthorn,
    • Abstract: Dyson, Christina
      How can we conserve and manage the significance of historic public landscapes such as parks, gardens, and reserves into the future within an environment of manifold change and uncertain resources' Inherited from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries many such places have local historic and aesthetic significance for their continuous recreational use, and their planting and design. Many have accrued and lost physical features as well as values over the course of their existence. These places are often highly valued by the communities who use them in the present day for shared or diverse reasons. However, in-depth understandings of the social value of these and other types of places to communities is still not widely undertaken in heritage assessments.'While there are numerous examples of projects that seek to identify the social significance of places, this heritage value is considered to be substantially under-assessed.'

  • Volume 3 Ephemeral plants/intangible meanings: The pioneer women's
           memorial garden Adelaide
    • Abstract: Bird, Louise
      The Pioneer Women's Memorial garden in Adelaide was designed by prominent local garden designer Elsie Cornish (1870-1946) in 1938, and opened in 1941, as a memorial to the pioneering women of South Australia. Of Cornish's known designs this garden was both her most politically provocative and conceptually compromised commission; the simplicity of its design belying the Gardens difficult creation. The unpretentious physical framework of the Garden, its straightforward formal features and symmetry befit its scope as a memorial garden but its most important design aspect and also its least understood element is the development of its planting scheme based on the folkloric meanings of the plant themselves; meanings that were attributed to the spirit of the State's pioneering women.

  • Volume 3 The lost gardens of Moorlands
    • Abstract: Turner, Bernadette
      In recent years preserving our cultural heritage has become more widely accepted in Australia. Unfortunately, some have associated this only with the built environment and the concept of preserving significant gardens has received less consideration. Often, by the time a house has been listed on a heritage register, the gardens have decayed or where they covered large areas the land has been subdivided. Even when the land remains intact, the expense of maintaining large gardens, particularly those from the nineteenth-century which were labour intensive, can be prohibitive. Moorlands, in the inner Brisbane suburb of Auchenflower, exemplifies how a significant nineteenth-century garden has been lost through subsequent development. The present house at Moorlands, built near the crest of a hill overlooking the Brisbane River, has been a landmark since 1892. Although the original front boundary of the estate was destroyed when part of the land was resumed for road purposes, Moorlands still makes an important contribution to the streetscape of Coronation Drive. Although the major portion of the original estate remains intact, the land is today occupied by Wesley Hospital, and a small portion of the land was purchased by the Brisbane City Council for use as a park. The original gardens have been lost, and only some trees remain. Despite this, a variety of historical sources provide glimpses of the gardens and how they have been used over time.

  • Volume 2 The wars of the roses: The national Rose gardens and the gardens
           of old parliament house, Canberra
    • Abstract: Firth, Dianne
      Within Canberra's parliamentary zone are two sets of gardens devoted to roses - the National Rose Gardens and the Gardens of Old Parliament House - and both gardens have been the focus of discord. In the 1930s conflict arose that tested public trust and attitudes to sponsorship of national projects. In the early 2000s heated debate arose over heritage processes and the Commonwealth Government's approach to making good decisions about the care of important places.

  • Volume 2 "... Hurry up them Pines": Gardens in Nineteenth-century
           Australian fiction
    • Abstract: Martin, Susan K
      Until recently understandings of nineteenth-century Australian fiction have been dominated by the 1890s Realist 'Bulletin' writers, particularly Henry Lawson. In such fiction, gardens seldom feature, except as indicators of hopelessness and delusion, or of urban alienation from the authentic Bush, or of fantasy.

  • Volume 2 The foundations of Adelaide's gardenesque parks and gardens: The
           role of August Wilhelm Pelzer
    • Abstract: Jones, David
      In March 1932 August Wilhelm [William] Pelzer retired as City Gardener to the City of Adelaide Council. With much aplomb the Council showered him with the normal honours as what then occurred with the retirement of a senior member of Council. Healthy, merry, and looking back upon his years he would have been much pleased with his achievements. In less than two years Pelzer had passed away at his early Federationstyled residence in Wayville, perhaps due to the sudden cessation of his passion that had been taken away from him due to retirement. Pelzer was an individual that has disappeared into the annual reports of the Council, while his extensive gardens and tree plantations have matured. What is very much taken for granted today within the green landscape of inner metropolitan Adelaide is his legacy. But he was much more than simply a 'City Gardener'. He was perhaps the longest serving city gardener of any Australian capital city council and therefore had the opportunity to orchestrate a major planting and garden creation program that would otherwise had been haphazard and disjointed in execution under normal short term city gardener tenures.

  • Volume 2 Muck, bugs and decay: The preoccupations of early Australian
           organic gardening
    • Abstract: Jones, Rebecca; Chesters, Janice
      'Organics' is one of the new orthodoxies of domestic gardening, however, mention of the origins of Organic gardening elicits a confused response. 'Wasn't it all Organic in the past' or 'isn't Organics just about tree-hugging hippies'' Although this is parodying popular understanding of the history of Organics, very little has been published examining the history of Organic gardening in Australia. Organic gardening is neither a contemporary manifestation of pre-modern gardening techniques, nor is it a child of the counterculture of the 1970s and 1980s. Rather, Organic gardening has a fertile and healthy history in Australia, dating back to the mid 1940s, with the establishment of the first Organic gardening organisations in Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania immediately following the Second World War. Although the first Organic organisations were formed in Australia in the mid 1940s, this study will begin in the mid nineteenth century, when tendrils of an Organic sensibility began to curl through early Australian gardening manuals. This article will examine early Organic responses to nineteenth and early twentieth century gardening culture, and explore the changing values and preoccupations of Organic organisations in the decades following the Second World War prior to its surge in popularity in the early 1970s.

  • Volume 2 Sublimity and amenity at Lindt's hermitage
    • Abstract: De Lorenzo, Catherine; van der Plaat, Deborah
      From 1880 to 1910, the German born-Australian photographer John William Lindt (1845-1926) produced a series of photographs documenting the Healesville district, and later his garden and residence, in the Yarra Ranges sixty kilometres east north-east of Melbourne. Purchasing his 80 acres from the Department of Crown Lands and Survey in 1894, his home, which he called The Hermitage, became the principal location for his photographic work from 1895 until the year of his death in 1926. Within easy travelling distance from Melbourne, Lindt converted his home into a guest house where friends and visitors were welcomed to join together in soirees of food, wine, art, song. His images depict an exotic garden of European trees and flowers ensconced in a natural setting of giant eucalypts and tree ferns. Lindt's photographic record of these gardens and the surrounding environs was in turn supplemented by two written documents: Trip to the Blacks' Spur (1880), written before he made his home in the area, and Companion Guide to Healesville, Blacks' Spur, Narbethong and Marysville (1904), which he wrote with fellow photographer and bushwalker, Nicholas John Caire (1837-1918).

  • Volume 2 Contested Spaces: Gardening campaigns of the Christchurch home
           front, 1942-1945
    • Abstract: Morris, Matt
      This paper examines the vegetable gardening campaigns of World War II held in Christchurch, Garden City of New Zealand. As with Australian garden histories, New Zealand's have treated wartime vegetable gardening as a patriotic effort on the part of ordinary citizens. This study of Christchurch paints a different picture, in which statist and radical elements engaged with each other to promote their different agendas by seizing on the economic potentials of the home garden. In Christchurch, a vegetable campaign predated the national effort. Moreover, its impetus had little to do with food shortages caused by the War, but rather with nutritional concerns that predated the outbreak of hostilities. Later on the patriotism of the vegetable gardening effort both masked and, to a certain extent, depended upon radical elements who saw an opportunity to reshape New Zealand's economic structure. Backyard vegetable gardens were thus contested spaces, and the emergency of the War revealed their unsettling potential for a country still dependent on primary production within an increasingly fragile imperial economic system. More detailed studies of the Australasian home garden during World War II may therefore reveal a surprising unofficial history of 'negotiation and dissonance'. These may also contribute to an understanding of how gardens can contribute to the maintenance or change of the social and cultural order, a possibility posed by Michel Conan of Dumbarton Oaks.

  • Volume 2 Weeds in the Victorian Colonial Garden 1800-1860
    • Abstract: Dwyer, John
      Exotic plants were an integral part of the ecological invasion of the Port Phillip District by Europeans. They included weeds imported by accident and by design. Some were introduced because they were considered useful. Others were introduced so that settlers could establish 'English' gardens. Some exotic plants were, however to become naturalised weeds and out-compete the indigenous vegetation.

  • Volume 1 The avenue in peace: Honour avenues of the great war in Western
    • Abstract: Richards, Oline
      Hundreds of thousands of war memorials were erected worldwide following the Great War of 1914-18 and Australians were as enthusiastic about erecting war memorials as the citizens of the other western nations involved in the conflict. In Australia, as elsewhere, memorials were erected by communities in almost every city, metropolitan suburb, and country town throughout the nation. They varied in scale and form, ranging across the spectrum of the traditional monument, such as the impressive state war memorials, the stone obelisk (the most popular), and figurative sculpture, to the practical memorial - a community hall, hospital, swimming pool, park or recreation ground. Erecting a memorial was a way of establishing a place where communities and individuals could grieve for the sacrifice of life and the trauma of war which had been universally experienced; express gratitude to the nation's fighting men and confirm national and imperial loyalties. And, although the memorials were part of a national mood of commemoration, they also allowed individual communities to express their local identity and independence, and while they may be categorized and show evident similarities almost all memorials are specific to the place and community where they were erected.

  • Volume 1 'Wog plants go home': Race, ethnicity and horticulture in
    • Abstract: Mirmohamadi, Kylie
      Immigration (that which is deemed 'legal' and otherwise) is a source of intense anxiety in the current Australian political climate, and has been a significant component of our national self-image for many decades. A discourse about race and racial identity, even more incendiary notions, has been at the centre of our national yearning since colonial commentators first grappled with the idea of what they called 'the native'. This racial discourse has been paralleled in the way in which plants, and planting practices, have been perceived and discussed in Australia - and that the relationships between settler, migrant and indigenous Australians have often been explored, and played out, in horticultural terms.

  • Volume 1 Limestone, Silver Birch, Pelargonium in the dry state: Uncovering
           the designs of Edna Walling in South Australia
    • Abstract: Jones, David
      Edna Walling's name holds prominent associations with garden and landscape design in Australia. It is a name also strongly associated with her work in Victoria, and in her latter years, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Her name provokes passionate stewardship in Victoria for those who own and care for her designs, or search around for skerricks of her designs, notes, or inklings that she set foot in a particular garden or landscape without ever putting pen and water to paper about it. The impact of her legacy was brought to bear when Peter Watts first catalogued these projects in his Graduate Diploma thesis at RMIT in 1979 and subsequently steered the re-publication of several Walling monographs; in 1995 when curator Jane Alexander staged The Living Sculptures of Edna Walling (1995) exhibition at the McClelland Gallery in Frankston, Victoria; and, more recently, the publication by Trisha Dixon and Jennie Churchill, The Vision of Edna Walling (1998). The Alexander exhibition brought together a remarkable series of fragile and previously unseen ink and watercolour garden designs together with a complementary series of photographs. This exhibition laid the foundations for the exhaustive survey of The Vision of Edna Walling (1998) that documented an illustrative view of her garden design plans together with images of the now-mature gardens that she designed.

  • Volume 1 'It is inevitably a people's park': Ceremony and democratic
           sentiment at the opening of Centennial Park, 1888
    • Abstract: Hoskins, Ian
      Through the latter half of the nineteenth century white Australians expressed social ideas through civic ceremony. Like the erection of monuments and memorials, the staging of parades and ceremonies was part of the 'invention of tradition' - the response of modern democratic states to the weakening of older forms of 'social bonds and ties'. Events such as WC Wentworth's funeral procession in 1873, the dedication of Captain Cook's statue in 1879 and the departure of the military contingent to the Sudanese War in 1885 were, to use Rhys Isaac's description of ceremony, 'formal statements about the nature of the social universe'.

  • Volume 1 Flora Australias: Native plants in the art, design and gardens of
           E L Bateman
    • Abstract: Neale, Anne
      It is often assumed that an appreciation of Australian native plants, and their use in designed landscapes, dates only from the middle decades of the twentieth century. However, research is increasingly revealing that the appreciation and cultivation of Australian native plants was far more widespread in the 19th century than previously thought. One landscape designer in Victoria who is known to have employed Australian native flora in the 1850s and 1860s was the Englishman Edward La Trobe Bateman (1816-1897). Bateman's appreciation of Australian native flora, initially developed through his work as a botanical and landscape artist and illustrator, subsequently informed his innovative work in graphic and textile design, and featured prominently in his landscape designs.

  • Volume 1 Conserving post World war II designed landscapes in Sydney,
           Australia: Issues and approaches
    • Abstract: Evans, Catherine; Buchanan, Barbara
      Since the late 1990s heritage practice, both in Australia and overseas, has broadened its scope to include places and items created since World War II. This expansion traces a shift away from the 'fifty year rule', the longstanding age-based measure of significance. The loosening of this rule came about for several reasons, the most significant of which was the increasing perception of the arbitrary nature of the rule itself, coupled with demolition proposals (many unfortunately realised) for projects constructed after 1945. The rationale behind the fifty year rule was that it is difficult to assess works of our own era; with its loosening, heritage practitioners have faced a series of fundamental and challenging questions, chief amongst them: how to assess the significance of places so new'

  • Volume 1 Recreation, conservation and community: The secret suburban
           spaces of Walter Burley and Marion Mahony Griffin
    • Abstract: Freestone, Robert; Nichols, David
      New conceptualisations of neighbourhood, family values, open space, and 'green' consciousness were central to the nascent modern town planning movement of the early twentieth century. These themes were reflected in garden suburb residential environments, in density controls, the privileging of detached houses and allotments, showcase front yards, and aesthetically contrived streetscapes and vistas. Another distinctive feature - arguably the most innovative, yet also the most problematical - was the 'internal reserve'.
