Interest is huge - queues are the norm. Be prepared to walk a distance from where you parked your vehicle. And to stand and wait for your turn to go in. Well worth the wait, too. Plants for sale as well. A great spot to visit, lots to learn and even if just looking, a wonderfully fertile garden growing just about anything you could think about.
