All the plants are marked for easy identification, so wander around and enjoy the work put into this lovely place. We were there in the summer, so everything was blooming, trimmed, weeded and gorgeous. We loved it!

It's a nice little place to walk. I was a bit disappointed in that they only tell you about the herbs they have planted, not all the cool looking flowers
