An area of particular interest is just below the main offices and reception center. This area is the Herb and Spice Garden. Visitors with limited time often enjoy walking around this area to see herbs from around the world. There is also a pavilion and pond with a lotus fountain, in the Young Memorial Garden next to the herb garden, where visitors can relax and enjoy lunch.
Spice trees you can find in this area include: Cola Nut, Nutmeg, Clove, Allspice, and Bay Rum. The Herb Garden is separated into islands representing herbs from different parts of the world. The different sections include:
• European, African, Mediterranean
• New World
• Edible Flowers
For more information about herbs, refer to the numerous herb books available in the gift shop.
