Gardens #1

The lovely gardens of Norfolk Island can be viewed on Pinetrees Garden Tour where visitors are taken to a variety of private gardens and nurserys to see different types of gardens. Plants and plant material cannot be imported into the Island, so new varieties can only be introduced by Certified Seed or Tissue Culture. This album features the gardens and shadehouse of Parkland Estate, and the nursery and hydroponic plantings of Pacifica Garden Nursery. Other gardens visited will be featured in the next album.
