Tours, both guided and self-guided are available. Guided tours are performed by trained volunteers and staff by appointment. These can include a visit to the conservatory, the demonstration gardens, a walk around the lake or a hike in the woods. One can also enjoy an in-depth informational tour of the world renowned Harper Collection of Dwarf and Rare Conifers, the Bonsai Exhibit or Hosta Hillside. Reservations are required for guided tours at least 2 weeks in advance. Self-guided tours are a great way to see the Gardens at your own pace and to suit your personal interest. Maps are available at the Gatehouse or in the Gift Shop.
