Gardening is a hobby that almost anyone can enjoy. However, if you have a green thumb, some places from around the world will make your gardening experience even better. Whether you’re an avid gardener or just starting with this hobby, here are seven places to visit if you love gardening:
Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney
If you’re a fan of beautiful gardens, the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney is an exciting place to visit. It has over 28,000 plants and flowers displayed in the many gardens on site. There are also numerous events throughout the year, including guided walks and talks by experts in their field.
You can also visit The National Herbarium of New South Wales, which houses over 1 million plant specimens from around the world—it’s an excellent way for botanists (and anyone else) to learn about various plant species from around Australia!
However, with this massive number of plant specimens onsite, it’s difficult to keep tourists away from getting near or even touching some of them. In most cases, famous garden destinations use high-quality fences or gates made of metal to prevent any damage or intruders. These barriers are simply put to tell tourists that the destination is for their eyes only.
The New York Botanical Garden, New York City
If you love gardening, then this is the place for you. It’s probably the most famous botanical Garden in America and has been open since 1891. It’s located in the Bronx and has a large collection of plants from around the world. You can visit it year-round, with special events happening during springtime and fall.
The children’s Garden at The New York Botanical Garden has two sections: one area called Elizabeth Morse Genius Playground and another section where there are smaller play structures like slides and swings. It also has an excellent restaurant called Stone Mill Café, where kids can eat their meal at an outdoor picnic table while watching butterflies flutter around nearby flowers!
The Butchart Gardens, Victoria, Canada
The Butchart Gardens are a must-see location for anyone interested in gardening and nature. The gardens are located on Vancouver Island, where the weather is cool year-round. They are open every day of the year except Christmas, but visitors can only access the grounds during specific hours—visit their website for more information on this policy.
The Garden’s website lists all the plants and flowers currently in bloom, so you can plan your visit around the specific flora you are most interested in seeing. There are also special events throughout the year; check out their calendar for more information.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden, New York City
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a 100-acre botanical garden in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. The park houses a unique collection including flowering trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials and annuals, roses, ferns, bonsai trees, carnivorous plants, aquatic plants (including tropical water lilies), succulents such as cacti and aloes, native plants.
The Garden also features a greenhouse conservatory with seasonal displays ranging from desert landscapes with cactus collection during summer months to lush tropical foliage during winter months.
Ryoan-Ji Temple Rock Garden, Kyoto, Japan
Ryoan-ji Temple is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. It’s also the home of one of the most famous rock gardens in the world: the 15 stones, 15 mosses, and 15 plants arrangement. The Garden is extremely popular with tourists who come to admire its simplicity and beauty—it’s easy to see why this Garden has become such an icon!
The Garden consists of a rectangular pond, with stones representing the islands in it. The water is said to represent the universe, and the 15 stones represent the 15 realms of existence in Buddhism. The 15 stones are arranged in five rows with four stones each representing the four seasons. The 15 mosses represent the 15 realms of existence in Buddhism, while the 15 plants represent the three treasures of Buddhism (i.e. Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha).
Eden Project in Cornwall, England.
The Eden Project is a popular tourist attraction in Cornwall, England. It’s a large botanical garden that has been built in a disused chalk quarry.

With 250 acres of gardens and woodlands, it’s the largest privately owned house in America. It’s also a National Historic Landmark and one of the most famous tourist attractions in the country.
Besides being beautiful to look at and explore, Biltmore Estate also has an impressive history: George Washington Vanderbilt II built his home when he was just 24 years old (he died before he could move into it).
