There is a guided group tour offered where you will be led by one of the garden guides. The tour is one hour in length. They also offer a tour known as the Specialty Guided Tour. During the experience, the group will have the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the country’s leading botanical gardens. The tour is 90 minutes long. When you tour the garden, you will have the opportunity to view various gardens and the surrounding landscape. You will visit areas such as 10 acres of manicured themed gardens, the nostalgic Cottage Garden, and the fragrant Conifer Garden. Each garden is unique and exquisite. The Cottage Garden offers sweet scents that will take visitors back to grandma’s house. It is a showcase of heirloom plants that were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Conifer Garden is located at the end of the manicured gardens. It has an “eclectic blend” of cone-bearing plants that are both wild and ornamental.
