Although this is more a demonstration garden (with shop) than a plantation, our group found the tour pleasant and instructive. In clear and well-paced English, our guide gave us a short overview of the spice trade, including which spices had been especially valuable during European colonial days. He stopped at the various plants and showed us the seeds and bark that were processed into spices. We ended at the shop, where we felt no pressure to buy.

Really interesting visit, the guide was very knowledgeable about the plants and took time to give us an in-depth explanation of all the plants, their health benefits and what would help us with our grass break health questions. Highly recommended, certainly opened our eyes to the benefits of Ayurvedic medicine!

Not a spice garden/plantation but rather an a shop for ayurvedic products.
The garden is just a front to lure in unsuspecting tourists and push their ayurvedic products on to them.
Their garden (what was shown to us) is barely a loop of 50mts and the tour of which was barely 5 mins.
Then came the salesmen, whose push was for a better part of half an hour. They push and push their products even if you are not really interested in buying a whole lot.
And beware, most jeep operators seem to have a tie up with them since this is the only place you are brought to if you ask for a spice plantation visit.

Would rather suggest one visits Green Land or the one adjacent to it for a more genuine experience.

Not worth visiting . Spice garden has nothing to show . Total commercial activity for selling their Ayurvedic preparations & outsource ayurvedic medicines .

We made a stop here to buy spices on our way back to the coast from Wayanad. Its not really clear on arrival where to go, and we weren't sure if we could go in without a guide, or if we should pay or tip the guide who showed us round. Im not sure if the bit we saw was just a preamble to the shop...maybe they have full gardens elsewhere, but it was quite a brief walk, showing an example of each plant, rather than the lush tropical gardens I expected.
Nonetheless the guide was knowledgeable, declined the offered tip but then went on to serve us in the shop, so maybe they're on commission?
The spices we bought there were the best of all the ones we bought in Kerala.
Recommended for a spice buying pit stop.

First those said you to take entry ticket but I cannot understand for what they are charge? If you said them to go then give you go inside with out ticket. If you want to show spice plant then they also take charge for guid.
Their was a nothing to show in spice garden all are marketing of those various products.
Don't buy any product from here. All product and spices have almost double rate. If you want to buy spices then buy from Thekkady market you got in half price.
