The World Garden at Lullingstone Castle
Take a horticultural trip around the globe and visit the amazing World Garden at Lullingstone Castle in Kent the perfect day out for those looking for something different.
Laid out and planted as a map of the World with rare and important botanical plants being added year on year, visitors should look out for the Dinosaur Tree (Wollemi Pine) the oldest tree in the world and the rare and beautiful Eucalyptus Silver Princess which flowered for the first time in the UK within the grounds of Lullingstone Castle in 2006.
Strolling round the Garden visitors will experience Dahlias in Mexico, Olives in the Mediterranean and Red Hot Pokers in South Africa. The amazing Cactus House ‘Hot and Spikey’ contains some 1,000 Cacti, Succulents and Bromeliads. The Cloud Garden which opened in 2009 contains beauties from temperate localities across the world – ‘Purple Sugar Cane’ from the South Pacific, the ‘Abyssinian Banana’ from Ethiopia and ‘Ocean Morning Glory’ from Colombia. In 2009 the Garden was officially designated as the home of the National Collection of Eucalyptus.
