With plants from around the world, the Garden always has something in bloom, in fruit, going to seed, or newly budding. Follow this seasonal interpretative walk around the Garden featuring plants from many collections marked with blue numbers. Download the tour here, or pick one up at the Entrance Kiosk during your next visit.

Refocus and be restored by the Garden’s beauty on a self-guided contemplative tour of the collection. This free downloadable guide offers quiet locations in the Garden to read a poem, take in nature’s beauty, or just simply ‘be’. Set aside your stress and worries for a time to help yourself relax and build resilience for these challenging times. Download here.
