charge to see the gardens, but it has been free for the last couple of years.

on "Collection Size" : It is
difficult for any Mentha Collection Holder to give an accurate number of plants
in their Collection. The NCCPG/PlantHeritage wants the number of
"taxa", which is how many different forms, not necessarily
the number of names, for inclusion in the annually published "National
Plant Collections Directory ". The Collection Holder keep a list of the number of
"accessions", which is the number of plants
from different sources, including duplicate
forms, which is greater, and possibly varying in size
or currently offer in their published commercial list.
Collection Holders are supposed to make the majority of their Collection available for
propagation, for sale or distribution, at their convenience and in quantities
they can personally manage. Any numbers of plants given above therefore are a guide,
in reality somewhere between the number of accessions and taxa, taken from the current "National Plant Collections Directory",
compiled of information usually asked of the Collection Holder by the
NCCPG/PlantHeritage each July, and then publish the following March!
