Wednesday 7th March we went to Hamilton to have a look at the gardens there. Okay we like gardening!! They have these gardens that they have set up at great expense.The council consulted with gardeners from around the world to design themed garden collections. They explore the history, context and meaning of gardens through 5 garden collections:Paradise gardens, productive garden, cultivar gardens, landscapgarden collection and fantasy gardens. We really liked the Paradise gardens, which were Chinese, English, Japanese, American modernist, Italian Renaissance (my favourite) and Indian Char Bagh. Enjoy!
