Decimus Burton's magnificent Temperate House even exceeded in size his previous Palm House, itself when built the largest greenhouse in the world. The Temperate House took many years to finish because of funding issues, not being completed until 1898, long after Burton's death, although he did live to see the first part of it in use in 1863.
