  • A really good well laid out garden. So many different areas leading off from each other. Takes quite a while to walk around and admire the many different species. Excellent cafe. Excellent staff.
  • These gardens have to be visited to see the work that goes into them. There are around 19 gardens of different types and seasons. I managed to get around 15 of them before having to leave at closing time. I missed out the May Garden, June Garden, Arboretum also the Annual Meadow but will certainly go back to see them next year also to look at the Perennial plants and shrubs for sale at their Plant Nursery.
