These shady green patio nurseries, which began as the vegetable fix for the Dutch East India Company, are a dazzling spot to unwind. They are planted with a fine accumulation of organic examples from South Africa and whatever is left of the world, including frangipanis, African fire trees, aloes and roses.
At the garden's southern end there's a re-production of the VOC Vegetable Garden.A statue of Cecil Rhodes remains in the focal point of the greenhouses. Get your orientation utilizing an independently directed booklet from the Visitor Information Center on the Queen Victoria St side of the garden. There's a little display on the historical backdrop of the garden here too.
