Moon garden will offer a delightful experience
A moon garden which will have maximum flowers blooming at night is all set to come up in Surat which will give a feeling of gratification to all those who visit it. The garden will be full of beautiful and fragrant flowers that will instantly lift one’s spirits.
The garden, which is developed by the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) will come up on a 30,000 square metre land in Amroli area of the city. The civil work has already begun and the horticultural work at the garden is expected to start soon.
The moon garden will have at least fifty night blooming flower plants. It has been decided to plant white flowers, bright foliage, night bloomer and fragrant bloomer plants. Chameli, champa, jasmine, plumaria, rose, parijat, gardonia, tube rose, white butterfly ginger, tagar, lavan, night queen, sweet pea, kevda and sweet alyssum among other night-blooming flower plants would also adorn the garden.
The moon garden would be like a night recreation spot in the city. SMC garden superintendent S J Gautam said, "The basic essence behind developing a moon garden is to provide a beautiful landscape to people. It would be full of natural light".
The city already has many theme-based gardens like Shanti Vans for elderly citizens, lake gardens for recreation, palm garden, botanical garden, rose garden, tulsi vans, oxygen corners and vertical gardens at different places. The moon garden would be a night time delight for the people.
