About the venue
To the south is the very intimate English-style garden. There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays. A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden. At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden. The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool.
Additional Permit Fees for Conservatory Gardens
Ceremonies and photography sessions at Conservatory Garden require permits from the Conservancy. Permit fees directly support the maintenance and cultivation of Conservatory Garden. The $500 permit fee is included in your package price and we take care of the management of your permit.
