The Bizarre and Funny Side of Gardening!

World's Largest Garden Centre
The biggest garden center in the entire world is not in America - it's Bridgemere Garden World in Cheshire. It covers 25 acres, attracts 1.8 million visitors each year and sells over three million plants each year.

I Can See That Plant Growing
The fastest growing plant is bamboo. One particular species grows about one meter every day. At that speed, the increase in height can be seen after two minutes.

Your Largest Nightmare
The largest weed in the world is the giant hogweed. Left on it's own, it can grow to over three and half metres (11 foot) high.
