Must place to visit whilst in Ooty. Was a bit dry in Feb but have been told it looks fabulous during mid summer.

Not maintained well. Looked filthy at places. There were no flowers at all. Public bathrooms were dirty. Totally UNATTRACTIVE and a waste of our time and money

Face mask is mandatory, no entry without that. The garden is good and vast. Tea, coffee are available inside the premises. There is a small shop that sells tea powder, oils etc which says it’s from govt forest department. It was raining when we visited during 1st week of July. Overall a good experience and can explore variety of plants flowers and huge old trees. It took almost 2 hrs to complete the tour.
Best time to visit here is during spring when the flowers are in full bloom and lush greenery.If you come in the Winter season (December/ January) there is nothing much to see. Because during the winter season they start to plant flowers so you can't enter to the grassland.The entry ticket for adults is ₹50 and ₹30 for children.They charge around ₹80 for four wheeler parking.The garden is good and vast.The place is huge with greenhouse, sculptures trees, bushes and shrubs. It has variety of rare plants and flowers all well preserved.Overall a good experience and can explore variety of plants flowers and huge old trees.Best place to visit with family and friends.
