A book to inspire starting a garden to feed your soul - indoors and out! Petal Power is written in reflection of Julia Atkinson-Dunn's own adventure as a beginner gardener, sharing a fun selection of flowering plants that can be grown in her homeland of New Zealand. It's the friendly volume she wished she could have got her hands on while still sussing out her perennials from her annuals. In addition to 12 plant profiles tested and photographed in her own garden, the book helpfully demystifies garden lingo and offers ideas for homegrown seasonal arrangements. The result is an invaluable guide, encouraging new gardeners to experiment further with confidence. Written with a casual, relatable tone, Petal Power provides a friendly partner in your flower gardening experience, effectively demonstrating the benefits of reconnecting with the seasons regardless of the size of your space. 'Patience is enforced by Mother Nature, the instant gratification of our modern lives blown out the window. There are no negatives, only a gentle opening of the eyes to find nature again, all on your own terms. Have a go!' - Julia Atkinson-Dunn.

Author Biography:

Julia is an established and trusted voice in the online creative community with her design blog and social channels; Studio Home, created as the first of its kind in NZ in 2008. A former interior designer, she shares her relaxed and casual nesting style with readers, encouraging personalised spaces and an exploration of art (including sharing her own flower inspired artworks) Her focus from interior to exterior happened swiftly with a move to a Christchurch villa complete with garden in 2017. With no previous knowledge she began her adventure of transforming the largely shrub filled backyard into a seasonal, floral haven that reflected her personal style. Craving information she sought guidance from gardeners, hungrily soaking up knowledge and inspiration from books and social media. However, the lack of a picture heavy, local guide aimed solely at beginners was missing from her shelf - a prospect she has moved to remedy to help others. Photographed and written by Julia in her own garden over the last 2 years, Petal Power is presented with a modern, friendly tone in reflection of her voice and writing enjoyed by her followers online. She is excited to share her passion for gardening, reflecting the immense benefits and release she has discovered in reconnecting with the seasons.
