“Very Helpful With Ag Problems”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

These folks are great-they will analyze soil, diagnose insects, all for free and eager to assist the homeowner. The gardens are also very well done and a must see.

“A Zen experience in Wilmington”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

The Arboretum is one of my favorite places to go and just relax. Sit on a bench, stroll through the Japanese gardens, admire the scuptures and the amazing rose garden, or talk to one of the volunteer gardeners. The atmosphere is tranquil and the gardens are beautiful any time of year. I always bring out-of-town friends and family to visit here - it is free and all ages enjoy it. Overall the Arboretum is rather small, but it is still easy to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the scenery.

“A must see”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

I went to the Arboretum on a Sunday- the office and gift shop are only open Monday through Friday, FYI- and it was a fabulous experience. The Arboretum is small, but beautiful and very diverse. There was a rose garden, a Japanese garden complete with a waterfall, a "bog" with a wooden walkway, a pond with a dragon sculpture and much more. My mother is unable to walk for long distances without taking a rest and there were plenty of places for her to sit. It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. I wish the gift shop was open, but that is a minor issue.
