Lullingstone Castle & World Garden Pt.2

Now into the Poly tunnels for the less hardy plants from around the world. See previous post for details. 

The Cloud Garden is a temperate house and is home to some 500 beauties from around the world that are too tender to be out in the World Garden during the Winter
There is an Electric Shock plant in here

One of Tom's propagation benches 

Interesting to see the artistic designs depicting scenes from the natural habitats of these plants

Making our way back towards the World Garden

and will be taking some pictures of the family chapel which I will show in part 3
I am presenting this set of posts quickly as we are going on holiday - a lovely free break in return for cat sitting for a week and will be adding considerably to my photo portfolio and I am aware that I still have lots to post on blog yet.

So interesting to see cactus and succulents that are commonplace here but carefully tended and protected over there.

Gosh, I even saw saguaro cacti in there! Very interesting. Have a lovely little getaway!

How interesting! I recognized a few of our native plants in these pictures.
