If I lived in the area I'd become a member so I could visit often. There was an orchid exhibition during our visit. Most outdoor plants weren't yet in bloom, but the grounds must be spectacular when they are. Staff was friendly. We didn't eat there, but they had a pleasant dining area. In good weather I'd take a picnic.
