This huge botanical complex occupies a disused 15ha kaolin quarry, 60m deep. The plants here belong to a temperate climate similar to that of Northern Europe. Two enormous greenhouses (biomes) made from high-tech materials recreate the warm temperate climate of the Mediterranean basin, South Africa and the south-east USA in one, and a humid tropical rainforest in the other.
