English Tropic

 

Video: Englands Tropen

Trebah is a subtropical garden situated in Cornwall, England.

There are around 50 gardens publicly available, most of them created by wealthy aristocrats and businessmen in the mid-19th century. They sent 'plant hunters' all over the world to bring, for example, Rhododendron seeds from the Himalayas and tree fern from New Zealand. Thanks to the mild climate subtropical plants such as palm trees, bamboo and sometimes even orchids thrive here magnificently today.

Watch the video and follow the German speech by reading the text. You can focus on pronunciation and intonation if your level isn't enough for understanding perfectly.
