Firstly, as a scientist, I was delighted to see every single plant properly labelled with genus, species, family, and often sub-family names. The tropical houses are a delight for children since they house not only plants but also bright coloured birds from the tropics, including, unless I am mistaken, a splendid starling. There are several other glass houses for xerophytes (cacti and such). Outdoors there is an amazing collection of trees, and shrubs, all within smallish garden. Free entry and well worth a visit.
