Thank you for your review. 'Wild yet manicured' - exactly! Multi-award winning Iris Bannochie planted so many trees and these, combined with her informal layout, make Andromeda Botanic Gardens feel natural, although it is intensely cultivated. The numerous palms, shrubs and herbaeous plants simply add...More
