The house was interesting - not a typical heritage museum. The greenhouse is an excellent source of unique, interesting specimens at reasonable prices. Much better than the box stores!! Our tour guide of the mansion was excellent.

There is a beautiful greenhouse with lots of different plants and they sell beautiful hostas. Sometimes can be a great place just to walk around and relax.
