Visitors and guests are welcome to take photos of the Garden for personal use and future plant identification. You are welcome to come whenever the Garden is open to the public. If you call first, Office staff can help you plan your visit to avoid group tours, special events, children’s tours, major garden renovation work, loud machinery, etc. to ensure your visit will be satisfactory. Photo visits are subject to our regular admission fees.
