Enjoy seeing different kinds of plants, bushes, and trees, but the favorite things for my mother and my grandchildren are the goldfish ponds and the benches hidden among the bushes.

My kids love looking at the fish and the waterfalls, and exploring the many paths. The garden is smallish, but meticulously maintained, and beautifully designed. A favorite place in Blacksburg.

We buy plants every spring at the Hahn horticulture garden. The tulips bulbs purchased the last two years have been especially good. Also the annual plantings in a variety of types are great. The gardens are always lovely.

Generations have witnessed the beautiful gardens in spring, summer, fall, and winter. Thanks to the VT instructors our youth have a legacy. Planting, pruning, and harvesting. And just viewing.

No wheelchairs. This is just a garden that is open to the public with no attendants or admission procedure. It is mostly grass but we did take my mom there in a wheelchair.
