Biography

A love of plants seems to run in the blood of author/photographer Stirling Macoboy. He was often called Bill after his grandfather, Will Stirling, an irrigation engineer who was also an enthusiastic amateur gardener. A great-great-grandfather of the same name migrated to Australia from Scotland in the 1840's as a professional nurseryman. Whether or not you believe that green thumbs can be inherited, Stirling Macoboy has become an international best-selling author of garden books.
