Its a big garden with lots of plants and trees. I have visited in Feb month. It is bigger than I expected. Very few flowers, the artificial waterfalls were dry. The green houses were closed, just ok for a walk.

Go in Winter (Dec to Feb) after a good rainy season. The staff takes so much pain to make it wonderful. A must visit place in Tamil nadu.

We visited this place in winter. So lot of preparation was going on for summer tourist attraction. Its a big garden with lots of plants and trees all around the globe like Japan, Australia, America etc. But due to winter and cold most of flowers and plants are dried up. So plan to visit in Summer or after monsoon.

However, it felt more like a park rather than gardens.... very, very few flowers... even the artificial waterfalls were dry. The green houses weren't very interesting either, just ok. It's a good place for a stroll and to see how locals enjoy having... More

i guess its the ooty climate that gives these flowers at this garden such a fresh look and smell.. the whole place is full of flowers and greenery all around.. if you are a nature lover you can spend the whole day here without getting bored ...
