Staff was very helpful. Information sheets were useful but awkward to use. Path layed out was well planned. Kids would get bored. There are places to hide from the heat. Quite a variety of plants

Even though they had work going on we spent a very relaxing morning walking around the gardens. keep your wits about you as some of the plants are sharp, don't back into any while looking at others.

Many beautiful and exotic succulents in this famous garden. A wonderful place to view possible garden additions and enjoy a leisurely stroll through well laid out paths.
