Bristol Botanic Garden
Website: Bristol Botanic Garden website
The 1.77 hectare garden is home to 4,500 species arranged in four core collections, Evolution, Mediterranean, Local Flora and Rare Natives and Useful Plants, to provide a unique teaching, research and conservation resource. Planted in inspirational displays each collection has been designed to be attractive as well as educational, with some displays allowing visitors to walk through and be ‘immersed’ in the plantings. Each core collection is divided into a number of sub-collections (displays) which focus on a specific aspect of plant biology, ecology, or use.
