    Amazing environment and a great heirloom gardening shop. Temperature drops a good 5 degrees Celsius from all the lushness

    One of my favourite places in town! Get a tour with Susan Howard and buy seeds from the Digger's Club afterwards, or just have a good read in the sun.

    Don't believe the sign with closing times for the Botanic Rd gate. They close when the guy on duty wants to go home!

    Autumn is the time to gather crunchy dried up leaves and throw them in the air. Indulge your inner child, you know you want to! =)
