Aitken explores the environmental and social influences that have helped produce our unique gardening culture; from Indigenous land management and the earliest European garden at Farm Cove, to the potted plants and besser block screens of mid-twentieth century modernist design. Drawing on the collections of the State Library of New South Wales, Planting Dreams showcases Australian garden making through paintings, sketches, photographs, and prints - from popular culture to high art.
