Longwood Gardens’ fern floor in the East Conservatory is covered with lots of greenery this summer.


Longwood Gardens reopened Wednesday.

The Kennett Square, Pennyslvania, tourist magnet had closed last Thursday after a tractor-trailer truck drove into the gardens’ visitor center, Pennsylvania State Police said. The accident likely was caused by a mechanical problem.

Longwood, a former du Pont estate turned regional attraction powerhouse, closed then and remained closed through the weekend.

A spokeswoman said the gardens would refund money for any tickets sold that weekend.
