Longwood Gardens is a large facility of 1,077 acres that contains all aspects of horticulture from formal to informal to naturalistic landscaping and gardening. It is an arboretum too with many labeled woody, perennial, and annual plants. It still contains the DuPont estate buildings and a very large conservatory with tropical plants.

There is something for everyone at Longwood, including children! The newly renovated conservatory has a wonderful garden with lots of water features and surprises for children (age 1 to 101 ;-)
Put on your walking shoes, because there's so much to see that you'll get a workout if you try and do it all. Annual beds, ponds, treehouses, perennials, bulbs, italian water garden, forest trails, vegetable gardens, example garden and greenhouse/shed, tropical lily ponds, huge conservatory, restaurants and gift shop.
If you love gardening and can get there, you must see it! I grew up near there, and still go back every chance I get.

A wonderful place for DG folks to meet and enjoy the day. A group from the Mid-Atlantic forum met the 3rd weekend in May toured the gardens, enjoyed lunch together, if they serve the mushroom soup don't miss it, it was wonderful.
Something for everyone, even the vegetable and herb gardens had a lot to offer.

There is something...no, many things...to love for everyone at Longwood. There are lovely plantings indoors and many extensive gardens outside. Please go at Christmastime, when Longwood turns into a magical winter wonderland, whether it's snowing or not.
