24. Tropical Treasures

816 Carrington Rd
Tropical Treasures is a private subtropical garden set within a subtropical outdoor and tropical indoor plant nursery. The subtropicals are taking over this labour of love, which is only three years old. Visitors will be amazed at what can be grown and how well they flourish in this garden at the foot of the mountain. With many display gardens open to the public visiting the nursery, we will also be opening our private garden during the festival only. EVENT: Epic Epiphytes
