The Formal Garden draws its inspiration from traditional European garden design. The three distinct terraces each have a unique focus.
The first features season displays where colour and form are showcased in mass plantings. The lawn terrace features whispering walls which you can try out for yourself. The third terrace draws its inspiration from Australian landscape gardener Edna Walling and features a hand-glazed pergola.
The display beds in the Formal Garden change every season.
Featuring rocky plant communities from different continents, the Rock Garden is where you can find South African Protea species (they come to life in winter) and South American Bromeliads (prefer summer) along with a variety of plants from around the word that bring interest in every season.
