In 1844, Braine donated his second plant to the Horticultural Society. At the bottom of the terrace on which the house stands there is a long narrow bamboo avenue, which is called the "Orchid Walk". This always affords a cool retreat, even at mid-day, as the rays of the sun can only partially reach it, and then they are cooled by the dense foliage. Here are cultivated many of the Chinese orchids and other plants which require shade.
