“Cozy garden”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We arrived late - could not find the opening hours on the web - so we did a 15 minutes visit, but did not have to pay! Meny cactuses as it was mentioned earlier and a few really exotic and interesting plants, but some parts are a bit less taken care of.

“I Liked These Gardens”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Well laid out, interesting exhibits, plants and tree species - nice cool areas to shelter in on hot days - very pleasant to walk around - we spoke with one of the managers and it struck me it was one of the lesser visited attractions - but for me - well worth half a day!

“Excellent if you like cactuses”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

As the title says - lots of succulents. I could have used more posted information on the plants. But it is nicely laid out and kept in excellent condition.

“beautiful but...”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I would've loved to spend more time there but got so bitten up by mosquitoes (just sitting on a bench) had to leave after 15 minutes.
My legs and arms completely bitten.
Shame. It really looked like a little piece of heaven.
