  • If you're looking for color in life then you'll find it here. Take an allergy pill because you'll be surrounded by flowers. The vibrant colors of the flowers will amaze you. The walking path is very flat, so no tripping while staring off into the distance. Bring water because you'll be dehydrated by the end of the walk. If you're lucky you'll see the wild porcupine eating some flowers.
  • Great place to walk around and learn about plants and gardens by seeing them, planted and cared for by professionals.
  • Relatively small garden but very well done.
  • Love all of the new improvements and can't wait to see the results!
  • Every plant I bought from them not only survived but thrived!
