  • Well we had a beautiful lunch with family in rely lovely surroundings. Lovely service. We left the men to chat while we explored the gift shop and the gardens. Very pleasant surroundings.
  • This is the rating for the Gift Shop in this Botanic Garden. I visited the shop on 25th Oct, 2018 when we traveled to the Botanic Garden. The sales lady, Bernadette, as shown on the receipt, went above and beyond her ways to help me. The ointment I needed for my husband wasn't available in her shop, she gave me a generous amount of her herbal product for my husband to try on. And that product did the miracle. It eased out his knee pain in two days.
