The place was very large. We didn't get to see the outside plants much because we went in early April but I was still blown away by how nice everything was.

My husband and I spent a fascinating afternoon exploring the multiple greenhouses each with a unique theme. There was an art glass show on display and the installations were incorporated into the gardens.
Loved it!

We visited this place in March 2012 when they were featuring Indian forests and plants as their display . They have maintained the place very nicely and keep featuring new things all over the season.The conservatory itself is very big and beautifully made.They have beautiful and rare plants there together with the water fountains which give such a soothing and lovely experience to visitors.The number and variety of cactuses which I saw here ,I have never seen anywhere else.

This attraction provided a delightful experience. The Conservatory is large, offering multiple rooms of beautifully arranged flora with some specialties, including orchids and bonsai. The display easily is comparable to Longwood Gardens in Wilmington. We loved the glass art, which blended well with the flora and added to our enjoyment.
