Bonsai display, cactus garden and water gardens.

Why not call into the cafe afterwards for a bite to eat. Much of the food is baked fresh daily, on the premises.

See the lagoon at Lotus Watergardens, and the fat barrel cactus at Collectors Corner.

Start your very own bonsai tree. Many bonsai’s grown in asia are traditionally handed down from generation to generation. Some of them are over 300 years old. Why not start growing your own legend?

They’ve become a great tourist attraction, but many locals also love to have a wander and enjoy the display.

 

 

Phillip Withers ‘Food Forest’ garden at the 2015 Melbourne Flower Show.

“After home made soup in the cafe, we wandered amongst some carnivorous plants and wondered how many gullible insects had been trapped down the throats of these hungry plants. Then some bonsai caught our attention and by this stage even the kids were starting to appreciate this garden world of plants. They loved the cacti room but I preferred the water garden shop while my husband appreciated the technical nature of the hydroponics shop. There was something for all of us at this garden world” ……Jill, Glen Waverly.
