Two conservatories--the Orangerie and the Limonaia--display non-hardy plants in winter, with blooming flowers in every season.

I took my husband there on Saturday for his birthday (he's a landscaper) and we both enjoyed it. There is a lot to explore, and we can see ourselves going back to see it during a different season. We got there early so not too crowded and fun to explore. Loved the vegetable garden, and fun to walk to the... More

Avery nice, not too big, botanical garden. The garden cafe has a lovely view and outside seating. The service however, was terrible. Very very slow.

I've been a member of Tower Hill for years and enjoy the benefits of having this lovely garden in my home town.The plant sale, various plant shows and the Christmas tree display are fun and educational. Tower Hill has something to offer in every season I especially like going in the winter and sitting among the orange trees listening to... More

Great place for plant lovers. If you want to just enjoy the beautiful and well maintained gardens you can cover the place within 3 hours. However if you like to pay attention to detail and really want to explore the collection of plants they have, it may take way more than that. There was a herb plants exhibition going on... More

Since we had never checked out the gardens when we had lived in the Worcester area, I decided to attend the Free Fun Friday event on 7/25. Diverse gardens, great views, and nice, shaded trails. I would have checked out more of the latter if the kids were a bit older (both under 5 years old) and/or I wasn't there... More

This botanical garden is a must see for any garden enthusiast - the property is spread out over 132 acres and has some really stunning elements. It has two glass houses, nice water features and a couple of fantastic formal garden spaces crammed with gorgeous flowers - in July enjoy their daylilies. They are open 9-5 and admission is $12...

Took a tour at THBG during the Free Fun Friday event (7/25). This is a beautiful, peaceful place with fountains, lots and lots of flowers, gardens and all sorts of interesting things to see. I enjoy gardening and being outdoors. To truly see everything this place offers, I think it would be better to bring older children (age 6+). I... More

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...
