More bonsai on display here than I have seen in some more famous gardens. No pressure to buy; OK to just look.

Sadly, I would not recommend this place to anyone. Prices are terribly high, owners are very argumentative. They do have a very nice selection but they act as if these trees are their children and go Into dissertations with you about talking to them and facing them when you talk to them from a certain facing side, it gets ridiculous....

Loved it the first time we visited in 2011. We returned to show it to out of town guests and the place wasn't the same. The trees did not seem to be faring well, but the folks who run it are pleasant. Perhaps the drought affected them.

I agree that this is not a place suited for young children because I have a young one myself and he was not too interested however, I do have a teenager and he asked questions and eventually bought a bonsai tree which was better than a snake which he wanted. The owners were nice and friendly. Overall, we had a... More

This picture was probably the best one they had on display and the lady there misinfomed us on how bonsais are grown and harvested...I checked when I got home. We had intended on purchasing but after seeing and hearing we opted out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Jade Gardens. The owners were extremely nice and helpful and had a large number of different varieties of trees. We bought two flowering trees and were very happy with them.

If you take kids with you, it might not be as much fun. Our group had parents and their and kids. The kids were very well behaved, as we prewarned them how to behave. Nevertheless, the owner followed around the entire time, giving us a pre-emptive dirty look. It wasn't until we were leaving and had to exit through the... More

We stopped at the Jade Gardens on a day trip to Wimberley. The owner was friendly and very knowledgeable. He had an amazing variety of bonsai plants...also bonsai pots, books, soil, etc. The place is rather rough..not sure it is wheelchair accessible. He also had some beautiful handcrafted copper jewelry with natural stones made by his daughter. A "must see"... More
