It's a lovely drive through Germantown from the city & a nice walk for 60-90 minutes. The staff we encountered were helpful & friendly. Loved the two horticulturists who explained the danger of the invasive "Norway maple!"

Beautiful landscapes of plants with magnificent gardens. The fernery is my favorite area! There is so much to see and learn we purchased a year membership to explore all year round. Great place for everyone to enjoy.
