The Garden includes the emblem of Stuttgart " a rearing horse" painted in yellow and black which is complimented by the yellow rose associated with Stuttgart and vines. The region of Stuttgart is known for its wine making although the variety of grape to be grown is a 'regent' grape which is more suitable to our climate.
