about government botanical gardens

Ooty Botanical Garden is a hub for nature lovers. The Rose Garden is a small terrace atop a hill off Etiennes Road. The season to be here is April when more than a thousand varieties are in bloom. In other seasons, the garden will seem drab and can be given a skip. Sprawling for over 22 hectares, These gardens are situated on the slopes of the Doddabetta peak, with a terrace type layout to add to the charm. Established in 1847, these are the mind work of the famous architect William Graham McIvor. With over a thousand different species of flora making for a lush stretch, Ooty Botanical Gardens are much more than just a relief to city weary eyes. It has an impressive array of ferns, plants, shrubs, herbs and bonsai plants that are a major draw.

Ooty Botanical Garden are divided into six areas, which includes the Lower Garden, New Garden, Italian Garden, Conservatory, Fountain Terrace and Nurseries. A riot of colours await you at the widely spreading flower beds that are an intrinsic part of Ooty Botanical Gardens. It also hosts an exhibition of rare plant species in May every year, another reason to visit this wonder work of nature.

Ooty Botanical Garden is also a popular haunt of the tourist, and offers a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. People come here to lounge in the lawns and walk among the shady trees and plants. One of the oldest botanical gardens in the country, it began life in the 1840s as a vegetable garden to supply veggies to Ooty’s residents. Trees and plants from all over the world were brought here over the years.
