Logan Botanic Garden is planted with semi-tropical tree ferns, cabbage palms (Cordyline australis) and many rare and exotic plants from the southern hemisphere. These conditions contrast sharply with southeastern England where Beth Chatto has created a 20th century garden that flourishes in low rainfall and chilly easterly winds.
