I like to see pictures of botanical gardens outside the UK; thank you for posting them. Does this garden have any collections under glass?

Thank you Richard :-)

It does have a small greenhouse with some roses, clematis and tender shrubs and trees - ginko biloba amongst others. I'll have a look through my photos to see if I have any photos from there.

The rock garden is really nice:

Richard - thank you. I've searched around for D. depauperanum seed without luck - would love to have it in my rock garden Big Grin Very striking color.
