A haven for tropical flora

The Scottish botanical garden consists of 10 greenhouses, varied and contrasting, which showcase the diversity of the planet's warmer climates. When I visited, they were partially closed to decorate for Chinese New Year, but generally they are open daily, and admission is 3 pounds (the rest of the botanical garden is free). Everything inside, the temperature and humidity levels, is controlled by computer, and a vast number of plants thrive here, with extremely rare plants from the island of Soqotra, between Yemen and Somalia. Many of these plants are used for scientific research, and you'll find the largest collection of rhododendrons in the world, as well as orchids, palms and other plants from hot, humid climates.

A very special visit

You can see blooms throughout the year, beginning with Himalayan flowers in January/February. Admire sequollas of North America and their incredible height, tracts of lilies, crocuses on the lawn, dahlias, spring poppies - beautiful colors and shapes and a delight for the senses. The castle on the rock at the bottom and seasonal changes increase the chromatic richness of place making a very special visit.

The Rock and Heath garden

The Rock and Heath garden is in the Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. It's one of the oldest British royal gardens and is cared for by the Royal Horticultural Society. The Rock and Heath is where over 5000 plants grow from high mountain regions such as the Arctic and Mediterranean. It's one of the main attractions of the garden at any time of year. The landscape is divided by a waterfall which looks like a small mountain river. The flowers are arranged by region, there are species from Japan, New Zealand, Scotland, etc. The Scottish Heath Garden near the typical landscapes of the Scottish Highlands, has a variety of pines from the region.
