Amazing gardens



After being stuck at home in Australia for so long and having explored every inch of the country that we can – from the local park to our state botanic gardens – we can’t wait to travel to the world’s great gardens. First on the list is Le Jardin Secret in Marrakech, Morocco.

Its origins date back more than 400 years, and it was resurrecte­d in the 19th century and opened to the public in 2016. It’s divided into exotic and Islamic sections. The latter has a four-part layout that echoes a metaphor of heaven according to the Quran. It would be plain rude not to sit and contemplat­e with a traditiona­l cup of mint tea in hand. And just being able to say Le Jardin Secret elicits a certain je ne sais quoi, non?
