I love the Alpine House at RHS Wisley – a traditional glasshouse packed full of plants, their terracotta pots sunk into a raised sandy bench. Just the right height for a close look at these intricate and beautifully bright jewels.

The Davies Alpine House at Kew – the clam shell – has cutting edge architecture but the plants have it at Wisley. Colourful, detailed, sometimes strange, delightfully named and laid out perfectly.
