The outside plantings occupy a 3 acre site with gravel paths, elevated wooden walkways, a pond, and a host of largely unidentified specimens. The website divides the garden into about 15 sections, with detailed descriptions of the residents of each. Sadly, one does not carry a computer with them while visiting here, significant limitation. There are scattered signs, but the provided sheet of paper with flowering plants indicated is of little value. Scenic, nice to walk through, some interesting views, no benches, ultimately a disappointing visit. The carpark was not nearly empty without reason.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
