  • My mom and I visited the gardens and LOVED it! We had an older guy do the tour, he said he didn't normally do tours, but he was amazing!!! We were running a few minutes late and called him and he was so understanding about it. The tour itself was about an hour and a half because our group asked a lot of questions. The gardens were stunning and well worth $10 a piece! It was also nice learning about the history of the gardens. I would definitely recommend this place to fellow garden-lovers! You won't be disappointed.
  • Had a lovely tour. The time , energy & love that was put into this garden is awesome. We were visiting Galena this past weekend and I found this on things to do. It was worth the time and money. I enjoy gardening so it was a plus. Directions were not real clear but follow your GPS and you will be able to find it!
  • Was closed for season but what I could see from the path that is open all year it looked delightful!
  • Very interesting private garden. Unique sculptures, water features and variety of flowers and plants. Little hard to find and limited tour times so check their website.
  • Unique gardens with many iron sculptures and man made water falls. Our tour guide Kymm was friendly, knowledgeable and considerate.
