We visited this garden today, and were amazed in all that is there to see. Also helpful answers to questions, and the paeonies were just magic! Thank you! Julie n Keith Nov.2018

We visited last week and though cold and dry weather have made for a late spring it was still most enjoyable. Dominic kindly provided us with free passes to return in a few weeks when the peonies will have woken up. Chris
