    A series in The Telegraph:

    Part one: Europe

    Part two: Asia, Africa, Australasia, and the Americas

    I haven't been to many of these gardens, but I will say I agree with the inclusion of the Desert Garden at Huntington.

    I think Ganna Walska Lotusland and Mt. Tomah should have been included.

    I'm looking forward to visiting at least two of the other gardens on the list next year: Missouri BG (still haven't been) and Las Pozas.

    Kirstenbosch and La Majorelle are the two that stand out for me of places that I want to visit one day, but don't have any active plans.

    Interesting to see that there where no gardens from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Fiji, Malaysia etc. I have seen some exquisite gardens from these countries. Maybe they just weren't good enough ; )

    Or the Telegraph couldn't afford to send any reporters there to check?! I've certainly heard there's some really good gardens down your part of the world.
