Abraham's spice garden is the place to visit if you actually want to see a spice garden filled with varieties of spices, fruits, flowers and vegetables. Sadly none of the big hotels really know about this spice garden and the genuine Mr. Abraham who has been filmed by Monty Don and features in his book on 80 Gardens around the world. This garden is situated on the way to Kottayam from Kumily. Mr. Abraham has a nice 2 acres land here and also stays here. In his garden you will find a variety of flowers that atleast I hadn't seen earlier. He has different kinds of vegetables ranging from red brinjals to purple chillies. He has almost 21 varieties of bananas and lots of spices from cocoa , cardamom, cinnamon to name a few. He personally takes you on the garden tour and explains everything with a lot of passion. His knowledge on the plants really fascinates you. He maintains the garden himself and keeps it so clean that inspite of being the rainy season we didnt find any mosquitoes hovering around our heads or feet. Really cant praise him enough. He speaks English fluently and a very simple man. His garden is a MUST VISIT while in Thekkady.
