The ancient grove of the Garden
The lower part of the Garden is called “Piana”: an area of flat ground where citrus and olive trees were grown since the XVIII century.
Thomas Hanbury removed a few olive trees to add more citrus and tropical fruit trees.
Right at the beginning of the “Piana”, the Mexican Salvia leucantha shows a gorgeous blooming during autumn.
