For somel gardeners winter can be a difficult time , we need the touch of soil and the smell of fresh green. To get in touch with some nice greenery the best thing you can do is bring a visit to the most nearby Botanical Garden ( Hortus Botanicus ) . The larger botanical gardens have greenhouses where you can find a large selection of tropical plants from all over of the world.
One of those gardens is the New York Botanical Garden with greenhouses stacked with beautiful tropical plants and butterflies. When the weather in spring becomes better they have great bulb-gardens and a wonderful rose-garden during summer. The New York Botanical Garden has also a adventure garden,herb-garden and a large Arboretum ( The historic Conifer Arboretum features towering pines, elegant spruces, and mountain firs. )
