Located between Torquay and Newton Abbot, the Garden contains countless rare and exotic plants seldom seen outside their native lands.

Our Famous 'Gardens of the World'...

Plant World Gardens was designed, built and planted in 1986 as the first ever ‘Map-of-the World Gardens’. Visitors will need to take at least half an hour or more to navigate the winding pathways around the ‘world map’ and thus see which countless rare and exotic plants grow in which countries. The views from the gardens are unbeatable, with green Devon hills and woodland all around, framing the distant views of the tidal River Teign. The adjoining rare plant nursery was constructed to enable visitors to take home plants and trees they had seen growing there. We give a warm welcome to numerous garden clubs and horticultural societies, many of whom make annual visits.
