The video commences with an exterior view of the impressive new Glasshouse and then progresses to a short tour of the interior including the centerpiece waterfall. Finally I have included some still shots from the great variety of exotic plants on display.

 

The RHS has built a new world-class Glasshouse at RHS Garden Wisley - developed in celebration of the RHS Bicentenary. The Glasshouse features a special Root Zone , Clore Learning Centre and Horticultural Theatre.

The huge cathedral-like glass structure covers an area equal in size to 10 tennis courts and rises to 12m (40ft) in height. It has three climatic zones, recreating tropical, moist temperate and dry temperate habitats.

A winding pathway leads you past rocky outcrops, waterfalls, still pools and gently sloping gradients, allowing you to see plants in a range of different environments
