We had a great time with Jenny. We came for the scones with jam and cream and certainly were not disappointed. It was a pleasure to spend time with her. She is an inspiration to all women.

Nice plants, poor disposition. Unusual that you need to pay to visit a nursery. Visitors to this nursery are good advertisers, the proprietor needs to make people feel welcome if they expect to make sales.

If orchids are your thing this is the visit for you. Large nursery of many varieties then finish up with Devonshire tea on Jenny's porch. Wonderful!
