Give yourself plenty of time to go round these gardens as there is so much to see. It is good to visit at anytime of the year.

We went on a Monday so it was quiet, it's a nice place to walk around if you enjoy flowers and nature. Was absolutely lovely in sun, but I can imagine it wouldn't be quite as fun if it was raining

This truly sub tropical garden is quite extensive and a lovely place to visit. There are many species of plants and trees to see. I thought the entrance fee of £12.50 was rather expensive especially as they didn't even supply a map so my advice...More

Sorry I cant remember but it is on their website. You can buy a combined ticket and go on different days and even go to one of them twice if you dont want to go to the Pet and Farm centre.
