The National Botanical Gardens was one of the products related with the conservation of the environment by sustaining development. Located in Glasnevin, Ireland, the National Botanical Gardens is regarded to be an impressive 19.5-hectare area, and is located between the Prospect Cemetery and the Tolka River.
The wonders of the garden were discovered by the Dublin Society in 1975. Since then an estimated 20,000 plant species were housed in the garden. For many years, the garden has managed to catch the attention of people from all over the world as one of the country's tourist spots. The said garden was also used as an area for plant research and study, aside from the fact it was also used in the breeding of various orchids.
Since different species of plants were housed in the garden, even the soil used was given importance. The soil has alkaline content and this helps in the growth of the plants located in the garden. The National Botanical Gardens was also a haven for other habitats, which include an arboretum, a rockery, a bog garden, a rose garden, and even a vegetable garden.
In addition to this, the National Botanical Gardens was also the home of the National Herbarium. In this regard, an estimated 750,000 species collected during a span of 200 years were also located in the area, including the most important orchids in the world.
In 2008, the Cactus House located inside the National Botanical Gardens was emptied to make way for more renovations.
