While every garden has its own secret charms, our Hidden Gem gardens are those not easily found or frequently visited hidden treasures across the city, and we would hate for you to miss out on them.

How does the competition work?

In each geographical area is a designated Hidden Gem garden, which you can find by spotting the gem symbol displayed below by its entry in the guidebook or on this web site..
