Formerly a market garden, Set on a fertile terraced plain, Laking Garden is home to RBG’s herbaceous perennial collections. The belvedere at the end of the path offers a panoramic view over the entire garden. Visitors in June should watch their step, as turtles will likely be nesting in the fertile soil of the lower terrace.

Fun fact! Laking Garen is a haven for prennial lovers who wish to stroll, enjoy and learn among the flowers!

Don’t be a hare but a tortoise and  Come enjoy a day among the flowers!
