Other Gardens, Collections and Nurseries

Lloyd Botanical Garden might not be among the biggest, but it is one of the few I have visited, with free growing true caudiciforms. The garden was created in 1878 on a piece of land, donated by Mr. William Lloyd. It has, among others, the characteristic plants from Sikkim Himalayas. Well fitted in the 1850 altitude. The garden covers 16 hectares on a rather steep hillside, outside of Darjeeling. Here is a herbarium, a library, a orchidrium, collection of bonsai and rare plants, a large conservatory, a cacti house and several collections in the open. Was here in 2016.

Names on moist, all in the database.
