We visit William Martin, the creator of Wigandia.

Located halfway up Mt Noorat in Victoria, the garden has been designed as a direct response to the drought and dry climate of Australia, in fact 99% of the garden survives on rainfall alone.

It's about a tough planting concept where only plants that fit in that location and in those climatic conditions have been included in the scheme.

Plants are put into this garden and then left to their own accord. The ones that survive drive the style and form of this magnificent garden. The ones that die, well, they die.

Wigandia is located 200km west of Melbourne.
