World's largest Victorian glasshouse reopened in London

After five years of restoration and moving 10,000 plants from the world's temperate climates, the Kew Gardens Victorian glasshouse has reopened to the public.

    The world's largest Victorian glasshouse has reopened for the first time in five years in London.

    It's home to 1,500 species of plants - some of which are extremely rare.

    Kew Gardens Temperate house will be used by scientists around the world to research the earth's biodiversity and how it can be used to feed people.
