The adjacent Plant Delights Nursery division sells more than 1,600 different perennials to satisfy even the most jaded gardener. Visit JLBG to see why keen gardeners from around the world plan their vacations to include a visit to Juniper Level Botanic Garden.
JLBG and PDN are only open to the public eight weekends each year for Open Garden and Nursery Days. During these open days, no visit requests are needed, although it helps the garden to know if you’ll be bringing a large bus group so they can properly reserve the needed parking space.
