As far as I can work out you can't now visit the Saxifrage garden without having to pay because they've blocked off that part. Previously you could access the Saxifrage garden by going through the nursery.

Can anyone confirm?  Does that mean on the Saxifrage day you have to pay the 7.50 each to get in?
