Eden Gardens


Eden Gardens in Carseldine is a gardening nirvana - a one-stop shop for all your gardening needs with a plethora of plants and pots and much more, plus a gorgeous creekside café offering breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake.

This award-winning garden centre on the corner of Gympie and Beams Roads sits on 1.5 hectares. The sprawling gardens feature an array of outdoor plants including pretty perennials and perfumed roses, native trees and fruit trees, tropical plants and edible plants, prickly cacti and lush succulents.

Green thumbs will find everything required for a gorgeous garden, from premium potting soil and cow manure, compost bins and worm farms, to water features, sculptures and screening.  Eden Gardens hosts a number of gardening and creative workshops, from making kokedama and terrariums to taking care of house plants. In addition, there are school holiday activities for kids like potting and planting workshops and worm farming.
