It's too bad we didn't get there earlier. We only had an hour to look around before they closed. They have a beautiful collection of plants, some quite unusual that I've never seen before.

Is a beautiful, well maintained venue. Seems always something in bloom. Very attractive layout, and staff VERY friendly. Believe a movie was shot here.

Not very large but nice and well maintained gardens. Green house has lots of information and apparently you can use an audio guide to get information regarding the many plants there.

The Smith Conservatory and campus is an oasis of botanical beauty in any season - the campus is an arboretum designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and the glass houses of the conservatory have a dazzling array of plants - a must see!

I agree - 1-2 hours should be sufficient especially at tis time of year. The outside gardens may not have much to offer.
