From street gardens in LA to grand country estates in Auckland; tiny rental gardens in Sydney to plant packed suburban Brisbane backyards, The Planthunter: Truth, Beauty, Chaos and Plants is a visceral and immersive exploration of the exceptional and ordinary ways people around the world find truth, beauty, purpose and connection through the act of gardening.

The book is a culmination of the five years we (author Georgina Reid and photographer Daniel Shipp) have been pondering questions of plants, people and connection on The Planthunter online magazine. It’s a reflection of our complimentary creative vision, shared aesthetic sensibility, and commitment to truthful storytelling. We’ve put our all into this book, and we’re proud as punch. It’s our hope that the stories contained within its pages will inspire contemplation, curiosity, care and action, as they have for us.

In Australia and the UK The Planthunter: Truth, Beauty, Chaos and Plants is published by Thames and Hudson (November 2018) and in the USA and Canada it’s published by Timber Press (April 2019).
