It was a hot sunny day when I went but it was still an amazing place! I am a Daylily enthusiast and it was the perfect time. They have dozens of varieties in every color but true blue, in multiply heights and in various environments. There were formal gardens containing many complimentary plantings and beds of just daylilies. They have... More

Visited this garden while in the area. We were there several hours and still did not see all there was!! Even if you are not big into gardening you will love time here. It's a beautiful place to go for a walk, spend time with family and friends, relax, or take pictures. I want to go back!!!

This place is incredible. We have visited several times and always enjoy nature at its finest. We've been to the daffodil show and the primrose show. I'm looking forward to the rose show on June 21st. When the field of daffodils blooms it's magical. The formal garden has flowering trees and bushes. It's so fragrant. I love seeing the families...

What a pleasant hidden secret tucked away in Boylston. We thoroughly enjoyed a quiet Sunday morning visit to the acres of blooming plants and shrubs. Absolutely magnificent grounds with pleasant trails and sculptures nestled among the blooms. The gift shop had some clever and reasonable items. The cafe will be sampled on my next visit! By the time we left... More

I don't visit often enough, but every time I do there is something new and different. They just completed an extensive addition. Spring time is wonderful there with all the daffodils, there must be hundreds of them. Then there is the view of Wachusett Reservoir and Mt Wachusett. The variety of plants is incredible. I have been a member for... More

Tower Hill has something to offer at any time of year. In the winter the Orangerie and the Lemonia are filled with plants and they have many different flower shows. From Spring, through Summer and Fall, the gardens change from week to week (and sometimes day to day). Hiking trails are wonderful and some overlook the Wachusett reservoir, Wachusett Mtn.... More

A peaceful refuge in suburbia, about 1 1/2 hours from Boston if traffic is good. We went in the Spring when everything was budding or in bloom. It has good access and parking, but it is a bit hilly for people on canes or in chairs. Plan to sit and smell the flowers and watch for birds and bees. It... More

I loved it the moment I walked through the doors. The beautifully decorated Christmas trees surrounding us and I could see the outdoor water feature with two turtles spurting water. The small gift shop had lots of goodies to look at and we did buy. I felt that a couple of the sales staff were a little pretentious but we... More
