“A most important collection of unusual trees”, or words to that effect, was the comment made in 1963 by Sir George Taylor, Director of Kew Gardens in Britain. He was then a guest of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens at the time of their fiftieth anniversary celebrations. The visiting botanists were also taken on a Jubilee tour of South African botanical gardens and other landscapes. The collection of trees Sir George referred to is in the four-hectare City of Cape Town park in Claremont, formerly known as the Claremont Gardens and renamed Arderne Gardens after its founder, Ralph Henry Arderne, in 1961.
