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.
