Caroline Seymour, who recently joined our East Surrey group,talks about her fascinating trip to Ecuador as part of the 2018 Alpine Garden Society tour to Ecuador and Peru. Caroline says; "It is difficult to imagine alpine plants growing at the Equator, but they do. Tracing the changes in habitat as we climb up the mountains takes us through massive variation in the flora, from giants down to the tiniest plants underfoot."
