A feast of Eden
Just four miles from Trenython in Cornwall you'll find the award-winning Eden Project.
On show are 100,000 plants representing 5,000 species from many of the climatic zones of the world. Some prosper in the mild conditions of Cornwall, others need help, which is where Eden's two gigantic greenhouses play their part.
The Humid Tropics Biome - the world's largest greenhouse – is home to the plants of the rainforest – bananas, rubber, cocoa, coffee, teak and mahogany.
The Temperate Biome is filled with plants from South Africa, California and the Mediterranean, a collection of species such as cyclamen, lachenalia and babiana.

In March, April and May, Eden hosts Bulb Mania, a spectacle of one million daffodils, tulips and other springtime delights.
It's a seductive springtime event – with a river of grape hyacinth sweeping across the link roof between the twin Biomes.
But be warned, we just about baked in those biomes, so I strongly advise loose attire.
Eden is exploring people's emotional reaction to colour. It has taken off as an ecological exercise and tourist attraction, though the queues in summer resemble lines outside football grounds when FA Cup Final tickets are being issued – so spring, autumn or winter are far quieter times to visit.
