Today we visited the botanical garden in Delft.
The botanical garden of the Technical University Delft was created in 1917 as ‘cultural garden for technologically useful plants’.
At this time of the year, the greenhouses are of course the most interesting.
Among the greenhouses is also the Orangery, where container plants can be harbored frost free in winter.
In the centre of the garden are the hothouses with tropical and subtropical plants. (the camera lens was fogged constantly)
So many bigleaf beauty! I would have gladly brought a few plant cuttings...
For the 'nature loving' public the garden is accessible in all seasons.
