My husband and I got married there, right down the main aisle. There were roses all around. It was so beautiful. We try to go back every year on our anniversary, sometimes more. We now have a little girl that we take there so she can see all the pretty flowers,train,pond and more. If you get that way you have to check it out!
My wife and I drove an hour just to see Luthy BG, but wished we hadn't. There's just not much there -- so I guess at least the price is right. I was especially annoyed at the plants not being labeled. I guess Luthy is for experts who already know the names of all the specimens, not for novices like me who think it's a botanical gardens' job to educate.
We went during Luthy's June "plant sale." What a joke. I'd printed out the "Plant Sale 2006" document available on Luthy's Website, which listed over 20 pages of plants presumably available at the sale. But the so-called sale occupied only a small section of one greenhouse. Not much to choose from, and even though a worker announced that all the plants were now "half price," those half-prices were no better than the regular prices at any nursery or garden center. From now on, if I want to see and buy a variety of plants, I'll just go to Wal-Mart, because it definitely beats what we saw at Luthy's plant sale.
