Those into flora or photography will be in heaven if they go to Longwood Gardens. Is Beautiful gardens that seem to go on forever and ever with and huge greenhouses that look like a labyrinth inside we can find lot of flowers, plants, bonsai. Beside the gardens you can also enjoy the lesser visited parts of the gardens that are worth seeing are the following: The tree houses, the woods, and the house/museum. Even the gift shop that is very fun to walk through. There also a few wellspring they awesome to watch and a few lake that very cute. The place is huge so is a great way to walk and relax seeing a lot of flowers, tree plants etc. But if you are feeling lazy and don't want to walk there also a video cafe where you can see a few of the stuff of the garden. They also have a cafe, where they sell their own products. If you a near the area and what to spend quality time with Mother Nature you should visit this place.

We visited Longwood Christmas with my mother. While she is ambulatory, we knew that the amount of walking that would be required to really see the displays would be beyond her comfort level, so we rented a wheelchair. Everyone - from the people at Longwood's customer care center, to the Longwood employees around the property, to the other visitors - could not have been nicer and more accommodating to our first-time experience. And the sights were gorgeous! The displays inside the conservatory were lovely, with poinsettias of different hues, beautifully decorated trees, vibrant foliage. We stayed until dark to see the lighted trees. They were magnificent. Go, if you still have the chance!

Had a great time at Longwood to see the Holiday displays and the lights. We chose a Sunday after Christmas and earlier in the day, and are so glad we did. The crowds after about 4 p.m. are super crazy! Not to miss are the big exhibition halls, this year with a bird theme throughout. They flooded a whole hall to create a mirroring effect and one tree was decorated solely in peacock colors and ornaments. ProTip: Get away from the masses and take a walk around the exterior of the property. A new meadow is set to open in 2015 and the brand new raised walkways are really nice.

Longwood Gardens is great in any season! I highly recommend getting a membership if you live in the area. We first went in the winter and I was skeptical about how much we'd be able to see/enjoy the place, but it did not disappoint. The entire conservatory is open in the winter (and it is massive), and the grounds were all decked out for the holidays (we went just before New Year's). Trees were wrapped with lights for a cool effect, the treehouses were open, and there were lit trees floating in the ponds. In the spring, we've been going to LG for long walks around the meadow, and stopping by the new flowers and other features that seem to be cropping up weekly on the main grounds. Recommend going early in the morning in peak times, as the lines get long around noon.

Just visited Longwood Gardens for the Wine and Jazz festival and had a blast! Great weekend trip from an educational standpoint and equally fulfilling from botany/architectural landscaping stance. Make sure to bring a camera for the fountains and greenhouses. Spent the day strolling at a slow pace and still didn't manage to see the whole thing!

We recently attended the wine and jazz event at Longwood Gardens, and I was amazed with the scope of the gardens! They have something for everyone, and I don't think it would be possible to even begin to see everything in a single day! If we lived closer, I would definitely have a membership and be there regularly! Also, if you are lucky enough to live within an easy drive - check out their list of offered classes - they seem to have an incredible selection, so a little something for everyone!

"ON VIEW APRIL 5 THROUGH MAY 23" This was the advertisement regarding their Tulips on their website. We went April 14, and there were absolutely no tulips in bloom. Plus all the fountains were shut off. The greenhouse was actually really nice, but that alone was not really worth the price of admission. I'm sure it looks pretty if you time it right, but for us its pretty much a disappointment. Don't trust the website. Hopefully if you call ahead they could tell you exactly what is happening.

Our Bonsai Collection fascinates visitors of all ages. Learn more about the art of bonsai, and the history of our collection on our blog: http://longwoodgardens.org/blog/2015-06-09t000000/short-history-tiny-trees
The Japanese art of bonsai originated in China as the practice known as penjing. Early in Chinese history, trees and other plants were collected from the wild and grown in containers. The practice moved to Japan many centuries ago through social and economic interaction with China. Over the years, both countries developed various techniques that we continue to use in creating bonsai today. The Japanese word bonsai translates to "tree in a shallow...

There isn’t a more beautiful season to explore Longwood Gardens and all 30+ Gardens in America’s Garden Capital than during Spring! We’re just one of many Philly Gardens (all located within 30 miles of one another!) that has tulips in bloom. Make plans to visit us and all of the Gardens that make up America’s Garden Capital at americasgardencapital.org. #AmericasGardenCapital
