Owner know a lot about plants and spices but the trek around the garden was hardly worth it. I'm not sure what the big attraction is here

We were shown round the spice garden by a delightful young woman who was very well informed. It was fascinating to see how spices which are so familiar to us are grown. The shop was well stocked - I only wish I had bought more!

This is a place to visit if you love nature.
The host Mr Abraham is very friendly guy and is enthusiast in showing around his garden.
He has some endangered species of plants.
It's a worth walk to take!

It is the garden of a family since years. The man leads you throw it and makes you taste everything and also gives explanations about all the plants and spices : the use, the effects on the body, etc. He takes a lot of time and answers all your questions. He also has a shop with all spices from his garden
