It is very hidden not easy to find it. But very tranquil and pretty once you got into the garden. Friendly staff.

I can imagine that this place can be spectacular. However it was anything but. Simply because the gardens had peaked and were quite flowerless all over. I did ask about what was in bloom and was told several areas had plenty of blooming plants. They did not. I would suggest their site should post pre, peak and post peak timely... More

I was so excited to go to the Garden in the Woods and have been thinking of it for awhile. I was even trying to get someone to come with me. I would have felt bad because it was not what I expected. I live in Zone 5 and wanted to get some ideas on Different Native plants because you... More

We take a walk through Garden in the Woods at least once a year. It consists of various naturalistic habitats that are well labeled. It combines a serene and aesthetically pleasing immersion in nature with a learning experience. I fondly call the Wild Flower Society "the society for the prevention of cruelty to plants". Supporting them is a great cause... More

A lovely drive from NH. Acres of beautiful landscaping and wildflowers. Interesting 2 hour tour. Terrific shop with flowers, shrubs and trees as well as books and gardening goodies.

If you are into nature, wildflowers and a walk in the woods this is the place! Nature at it's best! Easy paths or some wooded trails all with wildflower everywere. Benches for those who may need to sit and rest overlooking flowers, trees and ponds. Spend as little or as much time enjoying your surroundings. After stop into the nursery... More

Garden in the Woods is absolutely beautiful. It is most spectacular in the spring, but lovely throughout the season. Our latest visit included elderly guests with impaired vision and difficulty with strenuous walking but the walk was enjoyable for both. We appreciated the many benches and resting spots along the way. I was surprised and pleased to find that the... More

This takes the "walk in the woods" to a new level, with beautiful natural plantings and informative labels. Lovely at any time of year, spectacular in the spring with flowering shrubs. An easy path. The nursery is nice, too.

This garden is all about living in Ne England and has the best selection of native plants in the area. You can depend on the plants you buy and you get to see in real life what your garden can look like. The trails are easy and there is always something special to see.
