Join us on a journey of discovery around the rainforest! Spend time in our tropical glasshouses and discover what makes rainforests so special. Learn about the climate of the rainforest, and find out how plants have adapted in such a unique environment. Discover an array of useful plants, with time for handling a variety of products. We'll discuss why rainforests are important, and how buying Forest Stewardship Council- and Fairtrade-approved products can make a difference.
