is the North Wales garden of Robbie and his partner Ben. A backyard Botanic Garden working to promote the conservation, education and scientific understanding of those plants that were around before the extinction event that saw the demise of the non-avian dinosaurs; the K-Pg boundary.

This very small garden hosts an impressively large collection of plants from all over the world. Many of these plants are threatened with extinction and it is for this reason that the garden became a institutional member of of BGCI (Botanic Gardens Conservation International).

The garden houses many members of the Proteaceae and is working towards a Plant Heritage National Plant Collection of South East Australian Banksias. Other notable groups of plants in the garden are Illicium, Chloranthus and Southern hemisphere ferns.
