Cambridge Botanic Gardens

Leave a comment

Toward the end of August 2016 my sister and I visited Cambridge botanic gardens. It was a lovely day and I hope you agree that all the colours of the flora really stood out!

A Cambridge speciality is the Fenland plants bed. There is also a linear chronological bed, starting with plants introduced to the UK in ancient Roman times and building up to the modern day. It reveals how our gardens have changed over time, particularly with the more recent introductions of ornamental plants. This was fascinating, but my absolute favourite at gardens is always the rainforest greenhouses! I also discovered the arid habitat surprisingly engaging, filled with spiky cacti and interesting succulents.
