Mediterranean Biome at The Eden Project

Palm Trees

So here is part two of the three posts this week. As I said, too many photos for just the one and they are themed differently.

This is the Mediterranean Biome area at The Eden Project – in the right dome.

It was a lot cooler in here but again, full of interesting information and plants

FlowersColour ExplosionThe sea of different shaded poppies were awe inspiring in Californian grassland.

TulipsThe Spring tulips were standing proudly too. All so well looked after. I wish I could achieve this look in the garden. It’s certainly inspiration for the future.

Huge Plants!

I think my favourite thing were the massive, sprouting aloe vera plants. Aloe vera is excellent for when you have a little burn – cutting a bit off the plant and rubbing the juice on the wound really relieves  it.

Med Garden

Jar FLowersThere was storytelling going on in there and they were also preparing for a wedding that afternoon. What a great place to get married ?

Cactus

If you follow me on instagram, you will know that I am a little partial to a cactus or two. My collection appears to be growing by the week. These were really impressive  – felt like we were back in Ibiza again. Happy days …

Shapes

It felt like a sensory wander that we didn’t want to end. Colour galore, giant spiky leaves, delicate flowers and mediterranean fruits.

If you’ve ever been tempted to visit – you must go. It’s a fabulous experience.

There is also The Core Building to have a look around. It is based on the structure of a sunflower. Of course, loads of areas to check out outside too.

Succulents

Then you can pop in to the shop on the way out. flower seeds, gardening tools and local foods. Oh … and some succulents. Yey !

Hopefully we can go back again soon as we have a pass that lasts a year – a good excuse to get there again in a different season and see what has changed.

Hope you have enjoyed this post ? Please do leave me a comment or tweet @lucylovesyablog.

The third one this week, was our trip to a hidden away Japanese garden. It was beautiful and has started us putting some ideas together for our own Asian inspired garden.

Don’t forget also, I update my instagram every day with new pics.

Thanks for reading.
