photograph of Ornamental Gardens and Tropical WorldSituated on the Western boundary of the park, the former 19th century kitchen, fruit and ornamental gardens of the Nicholson family were once only separated from the main grounds by a pathway. Today the alignment of this pathway forms the main highway of Princes Avenue.

Set away from the main focus of the house and pleasure gardens, in line with early 19th century landscape design, Nicholson laid out a walled kitchen garden, which produced year round fruit, vegetables and flowers for the mansion.

With the advent of public access to the estate, the existing greenhouses were developed into an extensive glass development which was opened throughout the year as a series of twelve show houses, the principle being the Coronation House. This elegant glasshouse, similar in style to the mansion conservatory, contained attractive exotic plant displays set amongst running brooks and ornamental ponds. While the productive grounds of the kitchen garden outside gave way to a more formal rose garden, which in 1901 was planted with a well-selected stock of Hybrid Teas and Floribundas.
