i really loved this very special garden! and i am impressed how near to perfect this family run paradise looks. don't expect a manicured public garden though, but rather an atmospheric and at places really magical garden. and stunning views all over the place. the walk along the sea is a lovely green jungle, the path to the beautifully situated light house is fabulous. the stroll between the stream and the walled garden rewards the mindful walker with many impressive features including two healing places. the developed part inside the huge walled garden is a highly decorative potager. some trees and shrubs are really very impressive (japanese cedar Cryptomeria japonica 'Lobbii'), rare (tasmanian laurel [Anopterus glandulosus] and black tree fern (Cyathea medullaris]), and huge (lily-of-the-valley-tree [Cletra arborea]). the only small downside might be a lack of labels on many more interesting plants and even minor mistakes on the rumpled hand drawn map through this garden haven. but real plant hunters don't mind those details - they will appreciate the green jewel as a masterpiece-renovation in progress. thank you meta for kindly explaining a bit of the background of your enterprise!
