The Collection

A desert glasshouse showcases their cacti and succulents as well as a potted display house, with plants from the New World (North, Central and South America) and the Old World (predominantly Africa, Madeira and the Canary Islands).

From the Americas there are cacti as well as Agave, Puya and Yucca species.

There is an educational exhibition on how plants adapt to drought as well as convergent evolution. Flowers can be seen all year round.

The gardens have recently arranged a display of cacti and succulents in terracotta pots and drift wood and have created succulent displays such as wreaths and table decorations throughout the garden.
