This is a unique garden in the sense that rare plants can be found here aside from its famous peonies, a plant collector’s garden. The place is about an hour drive from the town centre of Mittagong, New South Wales. We visited this garden spring of last year during the Tulip Time.
The garden is less than an acre in area but within it are the awesome plants that I haven’t seen from other gardens that we already visited in New South Wales.
During that time there were an abundance of flowers in varying colours and kinds that I don’t know which of which will I go take a photo first. So, I decided to snap on the big flowers first and later photographed the small ones. I saw one gardener, just one, who goes around the garden doing some watering and transplanting plants, etc., and not until we bought some plants from him did we came to know that he is the owner of the garden and the house.
We were surprised to know also that he has a glasshouse not far from this garden where more plants can be found.
Here are some photos of plants and flowers I took from this garden and due to limited time I missed to enquire about their names from the owner.
Another attraction of the garden is this elegant oriental hut complemented by little Buddha and potteries at the right side of it. I don’t know if the owner has a plan to expand this further to a bigger Chinese Garden or so.
