Not been to the one in Paris. Been to ones in:
Barcelona (big fan of the fuckin’ cactus bit especially)
Madrid
Lisbon
Faro (not much goin on here but there were a load of fuckin’ peacocks runnin around)

Me too.

The ones in Montreal are excellent. Well worth a visit if you’re going up to see the Olympic stadium.

Copenhagen has a nice one

Oh, ok. I’ll start a thread.

Also been to one in France, near Paris. Forget where exactly.

Don’t start with Kew: work your way up to it. Cambridge has a good medium sized one with an excellent selection of cacti and alpine plants

Ah fuck! Missed the one in Elche. One of the best that one:

Fuck loads of palm trees all over the shop.

They’re alright. I like the Arboretum in Boston. Trees and stuff.

Valencia one is great. Best city for parks I’ve been to.

Love them, always check out the botanical garden whenever I’m on holiday/visiting somewhere new. Peaceful AF.

Think Valencia is next on my list of Spanish cities to visit (that or Seville)

The Huntington Botanical Gardens in Pasadena is a total banger, there’s a cactus bit that feels like being on another planet

I believe so

I haven’t been into the greenhouses in the Glasgow one yet, have only walked through the park. I’m hoping it get a bit more colourful in the summer.

poor Lancashire. Not a garden in site :frowning:

I went to a really nice park in Seville but I don’t know about botanical garden. Both great cities imo.
