Even before most things were in bloom, the garden was something worth seeing. It's well maintained, and offers the opportunity for a slow stroll along bricked and gravel paths. The orchard conservatory was unexpected and quite interesting. There is a large children's area with a small amphitheater where I would expect that the staff offer scheduled talks which would certainly... More

The Daniel Stowe Garden is a must see for those who enjoy plants and flowers. Regardless of the season, there is beauty... multiple walkways, beautiful fountains, and a glass conservatory featuring orchids, indoor waterfall, and unique plants. The Gardens have seasonal attractions, a children's garden, informational classes, a gift shop, and garden tours. It's an especially attractive place if you... More

Lovely gardens unique canal garden, fun to amble thru trellised walkways, and serene specialty displays. Large and inviting children's garden. Nice place for a wedding or banquet. The facility is off the beaten path; takes a bit of time to get there from I85.

The garden has so much to offer. They've been making great investments in the property and in their programming & events. A great way to spend a couple hours on a sunny day.

This place is a gardener's fantasy land. You want to bring the plants home with you. If only they would look as good when you get them there. Children will enjoy the area they have set up with a fairyland atmosphere. If you have the chance to go don't miss it!

We were here too early for most of the outside plants but the orchid collection is fabulous. There is a nice path to walk with fountains. This should be an A list stop for anyone who likes gardens or plants

With year round interest The Botanical Gardens has the fix for anyone who loves plants. They have a huge variety of flowers, shrubs, trees. Their orchid conservatory is second to none and is a must see. They have an annual membership with discounts on their many classes. I've been to one wedding and one 50 year anniversary party there. Both... More

Save your money for Spring! It is still a nice place to relax but not a lot going on for flowers and exotic plants right now. Orchid Conservatory is always gorgeous! (best part in my opinion). Cute little gift shop and nice seating available for a picnic indoors, if it is chilly out. Front desk manager is nice, if you... More

We visited this beautiful botanical garden on February 25th. The daffodils, camellas, laurapetelum, hyacinths, snowdrops, etc. were blooming. The ORCHID HOUSE was absolutely stunning. Such unique displays! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Great place for families with children.
