  • Had a fantastic time. The gardens were amazing! The little store was amazing. We had a fantastic time. The lady's had a wonderful conversation with my husband and mother in law. We had a blast and can't wait to go back. They have scan and read posts through out the garden and you can learn about each individual plant in the garden it was fantastic!!!!
  • So many plants and flowers with so many informative cues you truly can get lost in this beautiful wonderland. Came on a date with the hope of being able to spend about 20 minutes, but to my amazement I was able to spend close to an hour and a half learning and discovering all sorts of Flora. For soul satisfaction The people who loves nature beauty should visit there as much as they can Beautiful place
