The world's best gardens are a balanced partnership between humans and Mother Nature. Even people who aren't gardening enthusiasts will appreciate the creatively designed landscapes that are found inside these plant-filled spaces.
But garden-going is a seasonal activity in most regions of the world. Snow, colder temperatures, rain (or a lack thereof) and other weather-related changes can drastically alter your favorite garden's appearance. Indoor gardens, from state-of-the-art bio-domes to classic century-old conservatories, can make garden-strolling a year-round sport. Not only can these covered spaces be a great cure for the mid-winter blues, but the controlled climate also creates an environment where non-native plants can thrive. Choose a greenhouse with a very diverse list of ecosystems and you can take a horticultural trip around the world without even having to step outside.
