You're welcome Sticki.
Yes - gardens are open to the public - there is an entry fee, but really worth it. One day well spend:) Plenty to see, plenty of show gardens - some design by former students, some finding their home their after Chelsea Flower Shows.
Every season is great but Spring is most beautiful there:)

Katarina - it's the first tree on the left hand side in the picture.
Sticki - I've seen few gardens so far - but this is one of the best:) not the biggest, but plenty to see:)
Surreylad - got plenty more of it different seasons.
