Pärnu County is home to Estonia's largest private collection garden. Over the years, Lepiku-Mardi farm has evolved from a family pastime and ordinary country garden to Estonia's largest private collection garden, spread out over three hectares, with more than 6000 unique plants from all over the world.
Plants from the Far East, Japan, New Zealand, along with those from the Alps, are especially noteworthy. The aim is to adapt the plants in the garden to the local climate, as they grow in much more favourable conditions in their natural habitat.
