The Garden was dedicated in 1907 to be a wild native plant oasis within an urban environment, not an arboretum and no formal beds - a small natural garden where the hand of man is to be less evident.
Former Garden Curator Martha Crone wrote: “The greatest joy in wintertime is to think of the beauty of coming spring and summer when sunshine again floods the glens, new green and new spring flowers."
