. So many species! So little time! Well documented plant museum in picturesque settings. Amazing unseen and rare examples of species you thought you knew. Pleasant walks for the non-collector. Vast collection of Dahlias in August and September. Make the effort to see the rock garden, even in fall. Restaurant is very inefficient so go to the pizza and kebab place across from the tram station. The garden is a 7 minute walk from the station.
It's a good garden. Huge one. Amazing for a walk and all. Felt more like a forest while walking. And some plants were almost dead.. but good for a relaxing walk at most.
