Beautiful landscape and floral experience

Very impressive layout of plants and flowers on this small farm-like plot, well worth seeing and experiencing. Met a great group of folk from across the border in New York who... read more

This place is only for people who really enjoy gardening. The price is too expensive for this garden!!! The tour was boring. Big disappointment!!!

We enjoyed our visit but we thought it was overpriced. The gardens were beautiful and very well maintained but we had walked all of it around in less than an hour. We didn't think it was worth the $15 admission charge. The kid's garden is a fun area.

Very impressive layout of plants and flowers on this small farm-like plot, well worth seeing and experiencing. Met a great group of folk from across the border in New York who were fieldtripping to get some recreation and ideas for their landscape business. They invited my daughter and me to join them and we got to make some good acquaintances... More

We were lucky to arrive in time for the once-a-day tour (10:00 am except Sundays). We were also lucky to be there when admission was half price (Tuesdays). I would not have enjoyed this without a tour and I think the full price is steep for what it is. The Botanical Garden small and can be seen in about an... More

This was a wonderful surprise to see. Although a bit small there were surprised around every corner. The walk showed us wonderful treasures and we will come here again!

The Berkshire Botanical Gardens are one of the older botanical gardens in New England. This site is not overly large and can be easily taken in in an hour or so. They offer an educational garden as well as a walk through tall trees that provide lots of shade. The plantings, including a wide variety of hostas and other plants,... More

So nice to stroll the 15 acres. Take your time and read the signs ... dream about what you might be able to apply at home .... Just lovely. This is what vacation is about, isn't it?

Excellent ideas for shade gardens. Strolling through the gardens makes or a peaceful way to spend a couple of hours.

If you enjoy gardening, here's a place to see what will flourish in the surrounding climate. I especially enjoyed the herb and shade gardens.

We visited this small but beautiful garden. The landscaping and plantings are well planned and the emphasis is on native plants. It is child friendly.
