Very unique garden

I found these gardens to be very beautiful and appeasing to the eyes. My grandchildren loved it! We went when they had the Lego display, creating bees, etc with the legos.

We went with three little girls and enjoyed so much this garden. Is small, beautiful, cute and so peaceful. The bonsai area is amazing. The lady in the shop was lovely. We spend two hours in the garden and was a perfect afternoon.

We went for the yard sale in a couple of months ago. We like that kind of thing. We were surprised to see the Bonzai Garden with trees older than me.

What a lovely oasis and great way to spend a few hours, just off the main drag (Rt. 1) in Ft. Pierce, FL. It is a living museum filled with butterflies, flowers, a rain forest, a waterfall, native plants, children's garden and lovely trails. The bonsai collection is the largest in the US and laid out nicely. We took 2.5... More

We went for a second visit to see the famous bonsai exhibits. If you are a garden fan or simply enjoy seeing various common or rare plants, this is worthwhile. They do a fine job of displaying many varieties found in Florida and elsewhere and the atmosphere is relaxed and informative. I would not suggest this as a place to... More

A peaceful visit w/ interesting plants to wander around and look at. Not a big place, but well done. You can see most things in an hour or two, just strolling with no rush.

Former plant nursery saved from extinction by local garden enthusiasts is now a showcase for the area. World renowned bonsai collection, significant variety of local and exotic plants, impressive holiday light display in Nov-Dec.

Three generations of our family were all entranced, particularly by the bonsai with the creative lighting. Quite reasonable for a family outing. Very serene and almost spiritual, as you can find a quiet spot to sit and relax and unwind.
