The new owner has done a really great job. Plants from all over the world, not any strict order, more chaotic. Arranged with fantasy and good taste. A place well worth visiting

The gardens are wonderful, what I would call chaotic order. There must be an enormous amount of work involved, yet it appears unhurried, as if it is a single organism stretching ad growing. I look forward to it developing under the new owners tender care.

Garden is in a poor state, neglected due to death of original owner. Needs a lot of work to bring it back to its former glory. Not worth the entry fee

Lovely little gardens sitting just back of the main street. Well kept and nice place to sit (there are a few benches) and take in the atmosphere. If you keep walking through the gardens and over the bridge you come into the park area.
