I decided to visit Montreal’s Botanical Gardens today, only to find it’s closed on Monday’s (until May 15). Although I was unable to visit the greenhouses, access was possible to the Chinese and other themed gardens.
The Montreal Botanical Garden is ranked as one of the largest of its kind in the world and together with the Insectarium really provides too much to see in a single visit – particularly photographers. I was there a couple of hours and really only had time to visit the Chinese and Alpine Gardens in any great depth. With a collection of 22,000 plant species, 10 exhibition greenhouses and some thirty thematic gardens to see, I guess I will have to revisit.
