In 1906, industrialist Pierre du Pont (1870-1954) purchased a small farm near Kennett Square, PA, to save a collection of historic trees from being sold for lumber. Today, Longwood Gardens is one of the world’s great horticultural displays, encompassing 1,077 acres of dazzling gardens, woodlands, meadows, fountains, 10,010-pipe Aeolian organ and 4.5-acre conservatory. Longwood continues the mission set forth by Mr. du Pont to inspire people through excellence in garden design, horticulture, education and the performing arts, through programming that includes exhibitions, musical performances by leading artists, renowned horticulture education programs, horticulture research, environmental stewardship and community engagement.

Orchid Extravaganza is amazing. One is almost overwhelmed by the colors and the imagination involved in putting such a vast show together.

Amazing gardens and walking even in winter. The starkness was amazing, formal gardens sculpted, the woods and frozen areas beautiful. And....and orchid extravaganza inside the conservatory that is worth the trip!

It's in your backyard so take a ride to Kenneth Square for one of the most spectacular Horticultural Gardens in the country. I think Christmas is the best. But anytime of the year will do. Indoor gardens outdoor spectacular fountains. It's the best

If you can get there when there is about an hour or so of daylight, you can visit the conservatory and extensive indoor gardens, then have the evening to enjoy the outdoors and spectacular lights at night.

Sorry it took so long to answer this. LONGWOOD Gardens is a park. When it's cold it's no fun to walk around. The indoor gardens are beautiful and worth the trip.
