Tours & Talks

Our award-winning display gardens are a great place to visit on your own or with a group.  We welcome group tours/buses.  If possible for large groups please email us ahead of time so we can have extra staff on hand.  You can even enhance your group’s experience with a mini-workshop for a small fee.
