Open Gardens Victoria Nioka

'Nioka' is the garden of ceramic artist Jack Lätti. Set in the hills of Research, Jack’s garden is where he combines his two passions – quirky ceramic pots and bold and colourful cacti and succulents such as stapelias, echeverias, crassulas, and a vast collection of aloes. The garden is predominately planted with Aloes from South Africa, and succulents from all over the world.

The Aloes and succulents are particularly suited to the dry environment of the area and Nioka is a perfect example of a low water use garden.

There are hints of Jack’s South African heritage throughout the garden in the plants, boulders and structures – all nestling comfortably in the surrounding landscape of eucalypts.
