Winterthur Glade Garden

Gardening was H. F. du Pont’s first love. He experimented with thousands of plants, refining the color combinations that are the essence of the Winterthur Garden in Delaware. Winterthur’s naturalistic garden is a masterpiece of color and design and is surrounded by nearly 1,000 acres of meadows, farmland, and waterways. We didn’t experience the blooming colors during our visit as the flowering season had ended.

Creating a Lush Green Environment

Inside the two biomes at Eden Project (in England) are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The covered biomes are constructed from a tubular steel (hex-tri-hex) with mostly hexagonal external cladding panels made from the thermoplastic ETFE.

The Rainforest Biome is the largest indoor rainforest in the world with over 1,000 varieties of plants.
