Garden Spur (84°33′S 174°45′W / 84.550°S 174.750°W / -84.550; -174.750Coordinates: 84°33′S 174°45′W / 84.550°S 174.750°W / -84.550; -174.750) is a spur on the west side of the Longhorn Spurs, 3 nautical miles (6 km) south of Cape Surprise, Antarctica. It was so named by the Southern Party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (1963–64) because of the rich flora of mosses, algae, and lichens found there.[1]
