Timandra Garden was the only Portland tourism attraction to be visited by the Cruise Ships in January 2019 with 3 visits to the garden. A comment from a visitor stated that 'Timandra Garden was the highlight of her tour'! Thank you to these extremely interested international visitors. They were all a pleasure to meet. A comment in the Visitor's Book - "More Botanic Garden than a Botanic Garden" because of the absolute diversity of plant material
