Owner description: In 1906, industrialist Pierre du Pont (1870-1954) purchased a small farm near Kennett Square, PA, to save a collection of historic trees from being sold for lumber. Today, Longwood Gardens is one of the world’s great horticultural displays, encompassing 1,077 acres of dazzling gardens, woodlands, meadows, fountains, 10,010-pipe Aeolian organ and 4.5-acre conservatory. Longwood continues the mission set forth by Mr. du Pont to inspire people through excellence in garden design, horticulture, education and the performing arts, through programming that includes exhibitions, musical performances by leading artists, renowned horticulture education programs, horticulture research, environmental stewardship and community engagement.

I have been here once. The place is absolutely gorgeous. Huge green house, waterfalls, flowers and tree house, I have to say I love all of those landscapes. The day when I visited Longwood gardens was perfect. We got some beautiful pictures. Longwood Gardens is one of the places which I definitely want to visit again.

The crowd was light, so it was easy to walk around. The gardens never disappoint. Very pretty and well tended. This is our second year as members and we plan to go frequently.

This is the most fantastic place for you to visit if you love flowers, trees and outdoors.
We have belonged as members for many years and it is over an hour away but we go as often as we feel the need for fresh smells, beautiful flowers and a good place to get a bit to eat too.. The orchid display is out of this world and who can come away without feeling the love of God and the creation of these most gorgeous plants. Longwood Gardens changes with the seasons so you will never tire of any of it. As a member you get a lot of many shows and services too.

We went to Longwood Gardens for the "Orchid Extravaganza" and were blown away by the number and beauty. There were over 5,000 orchids among all the other plants that were in the huge conservatory - it covers four acres. Be prepared to walk, through there are many benches for you to sit and take in the beauty. From huge banana trees on down to very small plants, it's all here. We want to return in the Summer or Fall when we can walk the outside grounds also.
