Lynda Hallinan

Journalist, author and broadcaster Lynda has been writing about gardening for 25 years, though she still can't keep a maidenhair fern alive. Her latest book, The Joy of Gardening, celebrates all the little things that make our hearts sing in a garden. Lynda lives on a farm in the foothills of Auckland's Hunua Ranges, where she grows far too much of everything from food to flowers.
