Cool place where you can see lot of different flowers, trees and other plants from all around the world. Very nice. more »
We had a function in this venue. It was apt as the participants spoke about agri products and services. The garden greenhouses are not huge but house a wide collection of flora from the tropics and temperate regions. It was pleasant to roam in the greenhouses Julia and Romeo.
Place worth visiting even if you aren't a big fan of flowers. Place has three main sections. Tropical, not so tropical and the outdoor section during summertime. Beautiful exotic flowers of many shapes and sizes. Last time I went the entry was free and there is a place at the entry where you can leave your jackets and stuff. I visit there regularly because different flowers bloom in different times.
