A beautiful garden featuring flowers, trees and shrubs from all over the world. The paths are well made but as our 'host' indicated at the outset there isn't much that's flat around here so be prepared to go 'uphill and down dale' quite a bit. Many of the specimens are labelled and for us (less so my teenager) was interesting to read about all the different species and to what use they had been put in different parts of the world. We arrived about 10am to avoid the worst of the heat but it was still mighty hot so the included bottle of iced water was much appreciated- as was the cooling spot before the final climb upto the restaurant. It would be interesting to see this at different times of the year as you do get a good sense of seasonality. Food in the restaurant was delicious and the mountain herbal tea was very refreshing though I did find it needed a little honey to make it palatable.
