Hi Stephen, thank you for your question. I'm afraid that only registered disability assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.

Did you know...? The Colombian national flower is the orchid Cattleya trianae, or the “Christmas orchid”. It naturally occurs in the wet lowland and cloud forest of the Colombian Andes.

Hi, yes the discount will apply at weekends too. As the orchid festival is included with entry to the Gardens you can use it while this is on too. Can I just check where you found conflicting info, so that we can update this? 🙂

Hi John, thank you for sharing this with us. Due to the event's popularity, we need to ensure the health and safety of our visitors whilst in the glasshouse which involves a maximum capacity & this can lead to queues. I hope you were still able to enjoy your visit.
