Due to its dry, sheltered microclimate, tender, Mediterranean and subtropical plants grow unprotected outdoors all year round. There’s an impressive collection of cacti and succulents, including huge spiky agaves, flowering aloes and prickly pears (Opuntia). Sun-loving herbs, giant echiums and puyas, vibrant tender bedding plants and mature palm trees thrive here, as do many colourful South African treasures, Australian eucalyptus, bottlebrushes, tree ferns, and much more.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.
Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.
Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
