Watch: Lockdown in our Waterlily House
Go behind the scenes to explore our hottest glasshouse during lockdown.
Our Waterlily House is teeming with beautiful aquatic plant life, from the Santa Cruz waterlily (Victoria cruziana) to the sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera).
In lockdown, this humid haven of plants was completely re-grown from scratch as usual each year, but without visitors to admire the spectacle.
