We visited the wild iris garden on 11th June and it was beautiful with many iris flowers.
The pathway entrance is via gates apparently to keep out horses that do roam the area but they have entry points to allow visitors to take beautiful photos with the lovely iris.
The toilet in the parking area is very clean too.
Do make a detour if you are in the area, you will not regret it.
