    The gardens offers a wide range of plants, including herbs and spices for the modern chef. The extensive range also means that a visit during one weather season will flower differently in the next- so there will be some thing refreshing for a second visit. Get an updated map at the entry gates before exploring the collection of flora.

    Nice gardens areas with lots of different types of plants to show off. Good place to walk around and an amazing place to get some really good photos of the plants that they have here.

    Beautiful well maintained gardens. My favourite is the arid zone. Spectacular variety of flora adapted to the harsh conditions. Very interesting.
