There are usually around 25 species to be seen at any one time, though 100 species are on display at one time or another, during the season. The exotic gardens are all attractively laid out. The tropical gardens are authentic reproductions of Italian and Japanese gardens with a delightful range of water features.The formal Italian Garden has brilliantly coloured bedding plants, classical figures, balustrading, and a Roman temple facade.
