Yates was founded by Arthur Yates, an Englishman who migrated to New Zealand in 1879 to escape the damp weather of his native Manchester. 132 years later, and with more than seven million copies sold since its first publication in 1895, Yates' Garden Guide is generally acknowledged to be the all-time bestselling Australian gardening book.
