Garden bugs

At the Garden, you can take a course, attend a lecture, buy a gardening book or find over 4000 garden plant species.

We answer thousands of gardening questions each year. If you have a gardening question, drop into the Visitor Centre and leave your question and your contact details with the receptionist and we will get back to you with an answer.

Online gardeners can help themselves to the plant and gardening information we provide to make their own gardens healthy and beautiful.
