Other Gardens, Collections and Nurseries

Let it be said right away: Don't visit this botanical garden to see caudiciforms , cacti and succulents. When that is said, I can only highly recommend this awesome park in Singapore. It is, without doubt, one of the finest maintained BG I ever seen.  It covers an area of 63 hectare. See more: The Garden; 100 photos. 215 orchid photos can be found on: Orchids. I visited in 2009.

It covers a huge area, including large lakes and hillsides. There might not be names on that many plants, but it is a beautiful park!

Large lawns and exotic trees.

A stage in a complex which roof are flower shaped.

One of its main attractions are without a doubt the National Orchid Garden. For a small fee, you get access to more than 1000 orchid species and 2000 hybrids are found here, and more are on their way.  215 photos more can be found on: Orchids.

Part of the large orchid garden. Here are other plants as well, including ferns.

Several fountains and other well design and maintained features are scattered around the large area.

The shadow/humidity house houses numerous orchids.

Next to the orchids are a bromeliad collection. I was here on the wrong time of year, barley any flowers. Never the less, it is impressive. There are over 300 species and 500 hybrids.

To maintain the mountain species, a large cool-house have been build.

Inside, orchids, carnivorous plants, ferns and allied are forming a dense surface on the interiors.
 The layout is like a canopy walk.

Carnivorous plants, like Dutchman's Pope, Droseras and  - others.

An orchid pagoda.

One of several lakes in the garden.

The garden is including some of the huge and original trees in the area.

A rather small, but neither the less nice bonsai collection.

The Sun Garden houses the C&S. Due to the climate,
this is not a big area, but the gardener are doing his best.

Here are all from grass trees over Beaucarneas, Agavas,
Grusonias, Euphorbias and Madagascar succulents.

A significantly part is sheltered from the rain by this glass roof.
