Inside the greenhouse you can find unusual and tropical species, such as Dychsonia Antartica, hanging orchids and ferns shaping a luxuriant garden where you can pause, close your eyes, listen to the scent of greenery and the sound of birds, travelling in time among old newspapers and antiques furniture.
In the exterior of the greenhouse, by contrast, inside a typical contemporary English garden, different heights, shapes and shades of green play among the spheres of Taxus baccata, topiary art, multi-trunk trees, perennial and herbaceous trees with a very light texture and silver and white colours..
