This is a much-loved garden filled with an eclectic mix of plants showing off the garden owner’s passion for form, texture and shape. The garden comprises a large collection of orchids, ferns and bonsai, as well as sculptures created from left-over garden materials. Nothing goes to waste in this quirky urban garden. Upon entry you walk through a forest of silver birches while hearing the tranquillity of water beside you. Thereafter you are left to meander through paths flanked by a mix of exotic plants and sculptures.

There will also be plants for sale at the garden opening.
