About Scotland’s Gardens Charity Open Day - The Glasshouses at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

DESCRIPTION
The Glasshouses with ten climatic zones are a delight all year round. The Orchids and Cycads House brings together primitive cycads which dominated the land flora some 65 million years ago, and a diverse range of orchids, the most sophisticated plants in the world. In summer, giant water lilies, Victoria amazonica, are the star attraction in the Tropical Aquatic House. Plants with vibrant flowers and fascinating foliage thrive in the Rainforest Riches House and the complex ecosystems of life in the world’s deserts are explored in the Arid Lands House. A large collection of gingers, (Zingiberaceae), one of the largest collections of vireya rhododendrons in the world and a case housing carnivorous plants are among other attractions.

Located off the A902, one mile north of city centre. Entrances at Inverleith Row and Arboretum Place. Lothian Buses 8, 23 and 27 stop close to the East Gate entrance on Inverleith Row. The Majestic Tour Bus stops at Arboretum Place.
