Gardenia Shevardnadze is a lovely garden of ornamental plants, located close to the Tbilisi Sea, where you can buy seedlings for your yard, balcony, terrace, home, or office. Or just enjoy a tranquil afternoon.
I first discovered Gardenia Shevardnadze back in 2014 while Cycling to Tbilisi sea and back
We have been returning to this place ever since. Sometimes with a tripod, sometimes not. Sometimes for macro photography, sometimes just to enjoy a good cup of coffee at the onsite cafeteria. If you are into photography, then you will enjoy Gardenia Shevernadze just as I did.
Little Cafe at Gardenia Shevardnadze
Although this is a place where some can buy plants, it's a very popular place thanks to its cafe as well.
You might end your day not buying any plants at all, but you will definitely taste some cake at this lovely cafeteria crafted with many small details.

I did find a lot of inspiration for our home remodeling tasks we are doing, and next year we are planning to build an outdoor patio - for now, I find a metal construction with crafted details as a really nice alternative to a regular wooden patio. Time will show.
Gardenia Shevardnadze is an excellent place in Tbilisi, ideally suited both for photographers (amateurs, like me), selfie lovers, and just anyone who can appreciate the beauty of plants.
