Garden Gathered

Garden Gathered captures a year on a flower farm with floral and garden designer Helen Leighton of Riverdale Farm, on the south coast of Western Australia.
Brimming with stunning photography, the book features over 20 floral ensembles showcasing Helen's garden gathered approach to floral design and her timeless styling.
Along with insights into living seasonally and gardening in this unique part of the world, Helen shares her secrets for growing, drying and designing sustainably with flowers.
A lifelong gardener, Helen has been growing flowers for nearly three decades. From curated rose varieties to an impressive array of annuals, perennials, and Australian natives, her cutting garden provides material year-round for her design work.
With a philosophy of building something over time, staying close to nature, and following a creative passion, Helen and her husband, Jim, have built their version of a beautiful life at Riverdale.
