“Longwood Gardens- a beauty every season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Each time I visit in the area, I am going to see Longwood Gardens. Each season all flowers are being replace by flowers of the season. The Orchid section is amazing and in general' the gardens are a great experience for the fauna lovers.

“Longwood never fails to amaze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

I recently went to Longwood for the Chrysanthemum festival. I had never been to this event before. The display is just amazing. The variety of chrysanthemums was truly stunning, not to mention the incredible "thousand-bloom" plant. Longwood has to be among the best and well-tended gardens anywhere. It is just beautiful in every season. Be sure to catch a 'fountains and fireworks' display during the summer season. Also, the Christmas display is a definite must-see with all the trees that are decorated with colored lights. What always strikes me is how well kept the property always is. Longwood is probably my favorite place to visit.

“We enjoyed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Beautiful gardens, well kept, clean, well signposted.
There is a conservatory with interesting, beautiful and nourished plants.
The plants that impressed us most were the Water Plates. We've never seen those plants although we've visited many botanical gardens all over the world. You can see them in different stages of growth.
In addition, there are in several places in the gardens, short musical fountains shows, nice.

“Unbelievable Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

I've been to Longwood Gardens twice- once in the spring and again in the Fall. Beautiful anytime of year, the tulips in the spring are incredible. The display is unbelievable and worth a trip, The entrance fee is a bit pricey but the upkeep of the garden must be costly.
