The World Garden (Kent) — Located on the grounds of Lullingtone Castle, one of England's oldest family estates, The World Garden is the UK’s first garden of its kind. The Garden featuring plants from around the world is the brainchild of modern day plant hunter Tom Hart Dyke. You may recall hearing about Dyke in 2000 when he was kidnapped in the Panama on a plant hunting expedition. Following his release, Dyke wrote the best-selling book The Cloud Garden and opened the World Garden to the public in 2005.
