This garden is situated in the foothills of N C Hills of the Barail Range, with Kumbhirgram Airport forming the southern boundary.
This garden was established in 1830. The name of the garden has been derived from cotton. This area was a cotton growing area, which the locals called 'Kumbha'. The British started spelling Kumbha as Koomber, thus the name.
Koomber's quality and production gained recognition under Mr C.W Morley who was the Manager, as did education and sport. The first High School i.e Morley Higher Secondary School was also founded by him. During the early 70’s a lot of replanting was done with Tocklai released clones and TV1 planted in 1971-72 achieved record yield over 5000 kgs per hectare.
