Sorry to say this was a disappointment. It was Christmastime and the poinsettias were pretty and the train set was nice, but it was hardly worth the price of admission. Maybe it is better when the outside is in bloom, but then the admission ought to change with the seasons.

There is more variety of plants at lowes than at the garden :/. The only thing that I liked where the trees! There where full of flowers and I really liked that!

We had the privilege of attending a wedding on the grounds. Quite lovely with a large variety of flowers. It was an out of doors wedding but did have a nice building for the reception.

You won't be disappointed. From the ponds at the entrance, to the lovely indoor garden, to the great exhibits (check their web site calendar - recently they had a Lego exhibit!) and the wonderful gift shop, with Pottery Barn-like home decor, beautiful note cards, jewelry and other beautiful gift items, this is a must-see. Make sure to go out back, walk around down the service road to the elaborate gardens (ask if you're not sure how to get there), check out the fantastic running train display and enjoy the carefully laid out and well marked gardens. There's an English garden, Asian garden, rose gardens and much more. I was just in Hawaii and visited botantical gardens there - they could use some advice on how to make it truly interesting instead of just relying on their gorgeous flowers.

The day I experienced this garden, it was cool, windy and early spring so none of the bulbs nor flowers were in bloom. There are lots of egg shaped sculptures by Asian artist adorning the gardens, however after just visiting Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina, this garden almost looks bare in comparison. I need to experience this garden when it's in full bloom spring, summer and fall - perhaps I would appreciate more.
