This name originates from United Kingdom. It is part of the Gazetteer of the British Antarctic Territory and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.

Narrative

Flat area at about 140 m altitude on the north-west side of Berry Hill, about 750 m north of Panorama Pass. It contains a large area covered by mosses and lichens, which is conspicuous in this stony ice-free part of Ulu Peninsula. The area is near to the Czech Research Station Mendel and the name is drawn from a Czech myth in which a mountain giant keeps a lush hidden garden where all the flowers bloom first.
