"Garden is not well maintained"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
It can be improved by building a children's play area and canteen can be placed outside. The garden has to be maintained as there is no proper maintenance. There are only few plants which can be seen, instead many are missing. More

When you visit Ooty, the first thing you will be asked to visit is the botanical gardens. Once inside, be prepared for a very long walk. You may be able to recognise the “famous tree” out here where songs for many Indian films have been shot. It is an ideal place to relax in the lap of nature (Never mind the crowd)

The Botanical Garden is maintained by the Horticulture Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu. A wide variety of exotic and ornamental plants adorn this garden. There is also a beautiful Italian floral garden and for those who simply want to relax, there's always the green carpet of the well-maintained lawns. The "Summer Festivals" is held each year during the month of May in the Botanical Garden and is an added attraction for tourists. The Flower Show is the pride of the festival. Cultural programmes are organized for those interested in traditional classical arts. Adventure spots like trekking also form part of the festival.

This garden is home to lovely flowers of diverse colors which are a treat to the eye. There is a separate fern house in the Botanical Gardens in Ooty where one finds many ferns and orchids. The vibrant roses, the imported shrubs and a host of other exotic and ornamental plants including thirty types of Eucalyptus trees form a part of the rich and unique collection.

There is also a small stall where you get “Toda” (the hill tribe of the Nilgiris). Here, they sell Shawls embroidered by Todas, tea, spices and the famous oils of the Queen of the hills.
