“Interesting bonsai, irritating if you have kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

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 gift shop that she was friendly and upbeat. I wasn't in a buying mood after that treatment, for sure. Perhaps adults would have a better experience. I realize it represents many years of work so she'd be understandably protective, but the kids truly kept their hands to themselves, weren't loud, and did not horse around while in there.

“awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

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" place in Wimberley!
