Our first sight of the greenhouses, which along with the outdoor holding facility here, cover 4 ha.
Ultimately, the most useful thing I got out of the visit was an addition to my vocab. I learnt that un massif (des fleurs) is a flowerbed. I'd been wondering what the word for flowerbed was, but never got round to asking. There was so much use of this word during the afternoon of our visit that I eventually twigged!
This blog post is going to form the basis of the outing report in the botany club newsletter. Jeannine, the secretary, spotted me taking notes and gleefully pounced on a 'new victim' (her words) suggesting I contribute to the newsletter. Either she will translate what I've written into French, or I will give it a go.
