Maybe clearer, bolder labels of areas as sometimes felt as if invading householders private space.

Thoroughly enjoyed the pretty and interesting gardens and woodland area. So much so that we upgraded our tickets to a joint season ticket so we can return to enjoy it later in the year as different plants take centre stage.
