We haven't been there in a long time but they have interesting things for sale. They now have another store in Gig Harbor too. So, things must be looking up!

It was very educational. Walking around and reading about all the different plants and trees was amazing. I really learned a lot. It is a great place to take children to learn about the different plants and trees.

I can't count the number of times I went past Elandan Gardens when driving on the Kitsap Peninsula. This time I stopped, toured and shopped and was amazed at what this artistic couple have done over the years. Elandan houses a world-class Bonsai collection. It is a place of peace and beauty right off Kitsap's Hwy 16. Eagles and herons... More

We stopped here on our vacation and enjoyed looking through the store they have. There are very interesting and what I assume are one of a kind items to look at. There is a lot of asian themed items with intricate detail. We did not pay to go through the gardens as we didn't have time, but the glimpse of... More

Our garden club traveled to see this Garden, it had been on our "must see" list for a long time. Yes, do take the time to get there - we had to figure out a U-turn as we zoomed by the gardens the wrong way. When you get to the parking lot you see lots of statues and figures, and... More

Lovely collection. Overlooks the Inlet. A peaceful place with many beautiful examples of the art of bonsai. A little hard to get to if you're coming from Bremerton.

As you pull into the parking area, you might question your decision, but head right in. The collection of bonsai is one of the best and you won't be disappointed.

The seaside setting of these gardens is just stupendous, the walking paths through dozens of beautiful bonsai are well tended in a very natural way. The stories of the individual trees are posted for your education and enlightenment. This beautiful garden is a labor of love and it shows in every way.

We recently had an opportunity for a private guided tour of Elandan Gardens, led by the owner Dan Robinson. So much knowledge about this garden art form was shared with us, and his devotion to the craft is evident in the many different types of trees he showed us, on this waterfront setting. It was so much more than we... More
