Main Walk and Glasshouse

Main walk

Extensive works are taking place throughout the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens in preparation for our bicentenary in 2016. This includes a redesign of the Family Beds along the Main Walk, which now includes two rows of Alexander Palms Archontophoenix alexandrae lining the avenue. Preparatory works have also begun for the construction of a Glasshouse that will be used to display succulents and other plants from arid zones in one half of it, and tropical species such as orchids and bromeliads in the other area. The public will be able to visit the Glasshouse, and updates on its development will be included in this blog.
