Useful Tropical plants
Situated in the south wing of the Winter Garden, somewhat badly named as it has a tropical climate, this space gives visitors an historical view of the principal useful species from the Tropics. Classed by theme (spices, fruits, roots, edible plants and craft plants) these useful species can be seen at their best through the presentation of them in an interpretive setting, much the same as that in the Terraces of medicinal and useful plants: integrated panels and objects are displayed according to the theme treated.
At the entrance of the greenhouse the visitor is able to use an instructive, illustrated wooden folder, a catalogue of the exhibition, that enables them to better interpret their visit.
