[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote The Utrecht Botanic Gardens were some of the oldest university gardens in the Netherlands, but after relocating in the early 1960s, the new Botanic Gardens were opened. What I particularly liked about this garden was how they integrated animal life within its confines; as well as being a proponent for biological control vs. pesticides for 20+ years!

    Very interesting tour. It helps to hear that sometimes greenhouses struggle to grow certain plants.

    Bless his heart. Roel did a fantastic job in this video. English is my first language and Spanish is my second. I can only imagine or hope that I could have done as well a job as he did. I don't know if I could have without struggling through it. It's also wonderful that no matter where we go in the world, if we want to speak to another plant enthusiast or botanic garden we have the latin or scientific names to give us commonality.

    Nepenthes do not grow in Central and South America- at least in the wild.

    Btw, if you're still in the Netherlands and in Utrecht, go visit Breukelen. It's where the name Brooklyn comes from. It's a small town with a nice atmosphere.

    So weird, I used to live and study there and came by the Botanische Tuinen almost daily but never actually went because I wasn't really interested in plants back then. Now I really want to go back there and visit the gardens, such an amazing place!
