The Laking Garden was designed in 1945/46 and is one of the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) famous garden areas. Formerly called the Spring Garden, this garden is a terraced plain home to the RBGs herbaceous perennials; perennials are a sustainable choice for many gardeners looking to cut down on cost and the time required to main a garden. The Laking Garden is the perfect place to observe the vast variety of colour, texture, form and season of bloom of perennials. The garden features several collections including peony, iris, clematis, hosta and ornamental grasses. Lucky visitors may also get a chance to see nesting turtles on the lower terrace.
