Jardim Orquidea is an orchid garden located c:a 200 metres below of Jardim Botanico in Funchal.
It looks like you walk into someones house but when you enter it´s like walking into a jungle with all the orchids and other plants. It´s a very nice garden and a visit is well worth.
The garden was founded by the Austrian family of Pregetter, Josef and his wife Marianne immigrated in Madeira in 1991 and started the Jardim Orquidea. Since 2010 the Josef Pregetter Foundation runs the garden.
The foundation works together with universities and other botanical gardens to avoid rare orchids to vanish.
In addition to the exhibition there is also a laboratory where orchids are developed. It´s, of course, possible for you to buy both grown up and baby orchids.
