September 15–November 30
As warm days transition to crisp nights, a parade of red, russet and golden maples emerge at The Gardens. It’s the perfect time of year to visit the Japanese Garden before winter begins. As The Gardens become quieter, our gardeners have more time to spend with visitors, offering a chance for you to see behind the scenes in some of our greenhouses.
Go behind the scenes at The Gardens: Our 26 greenhouses span 0.8 hectares (2 acres), keeping our gardeners busy year-round, growing our seasonal displays. Led by a staff gardener, your one-hour tour will introduce you to the greenhouses and cover topics from plant propagation and production to pest management.
Reservations are required and we will begin taking them in October, exact date to be confirmed. Please check back for reservation instructions.
Greenhouse tours operate on weekends November 1 to 30.
