Tower Hill Botanic Garden is New England's year-round botanic garden, a living museum of plants exquisite in every season. Several distinctive gardens arrange plants according to an overall Master Plan, that includes a Lawn Garden, Secret Garden, Systematic Garden, Cottage & Vegetable Garden, Wildlife Refuge Pond, Winter Garden, and more. Two conservatories--the Orangerie and the Limonaia--display non-hardy plants in winter, with blooming flowers in every season. Springtime brings more than a quarter million flowering bulbs, including a signature field of more than 25,000 daffodils.

We enjoy visiting Tower Hill throughout the year as the gardens and exhibits change. This last visit we saw a bride-to-be working with a planner on the logistics. I recently saw an article in Martha Stewart Weddings that provided a list of botanical garden weddings and TH was selected as one of the 18 beautiful garden wedding venues.

If you love orchids go see the orchid exhibition every summer. They also have a section where you can buy your orchid supplies. They also have greenhouses with beautiful flowers and trees.

Any time of year is beautiful here. The view over the water right now is breathtaking; in summer the gardens flourish; in spring the hillside of daffodils blazes with sunshine and in the winter there is great joy to be had in the Orangerie where its warm and lush green with fountains and music to soothe winter weary souls.

A beautiful place to walk, relax or take photos of nature. The views are great. The flowers are gorgeous. I went twice this year during summer and Fall. The Lilies were all amazing and in different colors. My photos are wonderful and I had a wonderful time walking around, just me and nature. Everything was just perfect.

For a museum restaurant, our food was exceptionally good. Combine this with a spectacular view from the patio of Mount Wachusett on a clear fall day and it's a winner!

Beautiful gardens, but can be pricey. Try to get passes from the library before you go. Otherwise it is a great place to walk around for the day.
