"From the earliest we could remember, we "children" were called by a series of numbers and raised in the Garden."—Hiro
Garden

The Garden (育成所(ガーデン), Gāden) is a location in DARLING in the FRANXX. It is a facility used for the development of parasites.

History

The Garden was built as a facility to develop and nurture children into becoming parasites. From birth, the children will attend educational courses to learn concepts involving FRANXX and piloting. They undergo daily tests on their capacity and aptitude abilities in the laboratory and will spend their free time in isolated rooms with toys and books to entertain themselves with.

Hiro rose to prominence with his high test results and he became famous among the children when he began giving them names. The Garden became infamous among the parasites due to the disappearances of numerous children and none of the adults would explain what happened to them.

Dr. FRANXX frequently monitored the children’s development and he would bring Zero Two to the laboratory in the Garden to perform torturous experiments on her.

Squad 13 initially believed any children who failed their capacity and aptitude tests, and were deemed unfit to pilot would be returned to the Garden. Hiro was originally set to return with Naomi after their failure to synchronize until he was proven to be compatible with Zero Two.

In Episode 12, due to the recent klaxosaur attacks, the children are being developed into parasites at a faster rate. A caretaker later reveals to Squad 13 that no one has ever returned to the Garden. In Episode 22, it is revealed that Dr. Franxx has kept the missing children and parasites deemed unfit in a cryostasis state in his laboratory.

In Episode 24, all the children are liberated from the Garden and placed in the Bird Nest following the downfall of APE, and the facility is presumably abandoned.

The Lab (第3ナースリィ・ラボラトリー, ) is the research hub that towers over the Garden. It is where all the children undergo tests and where Zero Two endured Dr. FRANXX’s experiments.
