  1. I’m the relative of this garden owner. Do u know this is private place? U r not allow to entry, please stop sharing and asking hiker to go there.
    My relative already complained about the hiker spoil their garden.

    1. Hi Elyssa,
      I would like to know if your relative do sell the flower plants. I had these flowers in my garden several years ago before it was damaged by the flood. Ever since then I’m looking for a replacement. Please let me know if there are any plants for sale. Thank you.
