The design of these gardens varies from formal French parterres to old-fashioned, English cottage gardens like those you might find in front of Anne Hathaway's cottage at Stratford. There are giant Victorian flower baskets and other garden areas featuring drought-tolerant plants native to our western deserts.
The gardens are redesigned every six months and replanted by hundreds of volunteers.
There are 250 flowerbeds, more than 165,000 bedding plants, and over 750 varieties of plants from all over the world.
