This tour was more about giving information about the plants used for the different hedging in the Botanical Garden. The particular garden we visited was beautiful, with several different hedges, cut in different ways, and we had several lovely views. If you weren’t interested in knowing which plant was which, then the tour was probably longer than you would have needed. It was good to see this garden.
