Whilst I knew to expect Ruston's to neither be a botanical garden nor a full blown commercial garden centre I did still feel rather disappointed with our visit, we mainly went because my partner is a keen gardener who has developed an interest in roses....More

Visited and paid a gold coin deposit to walk through the gardens. Disappointed with the experience. Looks run down. No flowers for sale. No rose bushes for sale. Found some interesting rose bushes. A nice walk on the lawns, but not a memorable experience.
