Just found this when I was looking for an old post with the web addy of that massive gardening discussion board ( which I didn't find
) I simply loved kew gardens. I used to go there all the time when i was in england. They have so many rare & unusual plants there. Things like that species of cycad ( I think ) that is the only one ever found & it's male. They found it in zululand in the 1880s. I loved the carnivorous plants & the giant water lillies. The victorian glass houses are out of this world too.
