Located at North Ryde, Eden Gardens is no ordinary nursery. I took over 30 photos on Saturday at the centre which is clean and well set out. With themed gardens including a Garden Gurus floating garden and Daffodil garden, an aerial walkway, art gallery and sculptures throughout the centre, this place is a beautiful haven as well as a hotspot with all the things you would normally find in a nursery along with a busy café.
I lunched at the Dragonfly Café on a smoked trout salad and topped it off with a cool lemon sorbet and Toblerone gelato (to die for). The café even sells alcohol and my husband was happy to get a cold beer after a morning that got hotter as I dragged him around the gardens.
Did you know that Eden Gardens gets its name from the "Beardies" which was a religious group (not sure of their correct title) who owned much of the land in this area and all had beards? Would be something interesting to research.
