A grandson of the original owners has a home at the garden center and administers a foundation to finance the gardens. A small fee is charged to see the gardens which contain petunias, begonias, snapdragons, ivy, dahlias, chrysanthemums, roses, water lilies, dusty miller, to mention a few.

She said that originators of ideas have made us lazy by making it easy to make things from models and ready made kits with instructions.
