A very well curated botanical garden. Giving the visitor a feel of living very much close to the nature. A large variety of plants and trees brought from almost all parts of the world. A must visit for a nature lover.

We visited this extensive garden on a quiet Monday afternoon in mid September. A map indicates areas of the garden and paths, but within the garden there are no directional signs. Roses were past their prime—a few specimens still had blossoms, but most had peaked....More

A bit difficult to find, but well worth the effort. Wonderful greenhouses, rose garden, shady paths. Excellent little cafe. Friendly staff who offered us the "seniors" reduction which made it a very cheap visit !
