Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park - Pictures and History (1088 words)
After a major windstorm severely damaged the Conservatory of flowers in 1995, closing it to the public, it gained a much less welcome designation when it was placed on the World Monument Fund's list of the 100 most endangered monuments — one of the few American buildings on the list.
Opened to the public in 1879, the Conservatory survived the 1906 earthquake intact although it had suffered frequent structural damage from rot and fire—most notably in 1883 when a boiler explosion set the main dome on fire and completely destroyed it.
The Conservatory's most valuable and famous plants —; the giant Imperial Philodendron that's 100 years old in 2003 and the cycads — share the main dome with economic plants that we all eat or use daily including chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cashew nuts and more.
Conservatories, Conservatory Design, Conservatory Furniture (396 words)
Conservatories have been around in form or another since the eighteenth century when they were basically greenhouses used by Dutch farmers to protect plants during the winter months.
The modern day conservatory is a far cry from the initial design of conservatories which in all likelihood did not imagine an extension to a property, which created a lovely space in which the garden surroundings combined perfectly with the conservatory.
Conservatory blinds are also a major consideration for a new or existing conservatory, as it is vital to maintain a consistent temperature to obtain the maximum benefit.
