The grounds were covered in snow when we visited last, and you know what - this is a great and wonderful place. The greenhouses are spectacular, well worth the price of admission. Bring a handful of sunflower seeds as you walk the grounds, because even though the Gardens keep feeders well-stocked, you can create a photo-op of a chickadee coming... More

181 acres of plantings and 10 greenhouses open all year, can we ask for more?! Flowers, trees and bushes abound, colors of different hues everywhere. Jardin Botanique is the second largest of its kind in the world (second to England's Kew Gardens). We walked around the Japanese Garden and had delicious tea at the Jardin de Chine. The bonsai garden... More

Visit made at the end of September 2014. Warm sunny day with the Trees in full autumn colours. The late summer flowers were stunning and we found a host of Monarch Butterflies feeding before their migration. The Japanese and Chinese Gardens are a must visit, so too the shady plants section.

great to feel like you're in the tropics on a dismal day. The special Christmas Bon Bon garden was festive. The choir was a nice way to bring on the holiday spirit.

The Botanical Gardens is a wonderful place to spend a bright summer, spring or autumn day (I honestly don't know if there is anything on tap there during the winter months) looking at some of the most lovely sculptured gardens that one will ever see, especially in this 4-season climate. Find a non-rainy day and get lost in the exhibits... More
